Visit one of the most important tourist sites of the host city and participate in dynamic hands-on educational activities developed specifically to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Century 21, the Seattle World’s Fair. Participants will join a team of educators, authors, documentarians, and historians to discover the connection of the Seattle Center to the World’s Fair and to explore what life was like in 1962 from local, national, and international perspectives. Through film, publications, theater, walking tours, and the Imagine curriculum, this clinic will examine how the Fair reflected the values of the Pacific Northwest and American common culture, as well as the accomplishments and dreams of many fields of science and technology.
