Young Chautauqua: 2:35–3:30 chapel February 5th –April 23rd
This semester, we will be portraying scientists This class will meet weekly for ten weeks and will be for anyone who can read. Founded by Nevada Humanities in 1993, Young Chautauqua is a nationally recognized and award-winning youth program in which young scholars research and portray historical figures. Through monologues and question-and-answer sessions, young scholars – in and out of character – engage their audience in lively discussions and provide insight into historical study. The Young Chautauqua program is a valuable way to increase a young person's understanding of, and engagement with, the humanities.http://www.nevadahumanities.org/programs/young-chautauqua
