MASSIE HERITAGE CENTER LAUNCHES FREE
'DIGITAL STEAM PROGRAMMING FOR SUMMER
Massie Heritage Center will offer STEAM-based activities, curiosities, and challenges digitally for families to enjoy this summer.
On June 1, 2020 Massie will premiere a new blog, “Summer @ Massie: at Home,” to connect with the public, marking a transition from their beloved in-person summer camps and programming into a new digital era. The free resources will be updated weekly to provide quality content throughout summer.
Rachel Bradshaw, Heritage Specialist for Massie, said, “as part of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, we wanted to create a platform for students and families to be inspired while discovering Savannah’s heritage.”
The digital format allows Massie to share with the public and Heritage Specialist Ayela Khuhro added that, “many of the resources will encourage viewers to go outside and explore their neighborhood, use their imagination, and create art.”
To kick-off the new blog, the first week will ask viewers to consider their own heritage. Projects will have a personal or local focus. One post, “Alma Thomas: Georgia’s Out-of-this-World Artist,” features the life and work of the Columbus native. With an immersive video presentation and how-to tutorial, viewers can create their own exhibition of artwork inspired by her. In addition to the free online content, Summer @ Massie To-Go Kits featuring materials and souvenirs will be available for purchase. Scholarships will also be available for materials.
About Massie: Massie opened as a school for Savannah’s poor children in 1856 and now operates within the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System as Massie Heritage Center, Savannah’s Museum for History and Architecture.
