Deadwood History offers Youth Magnet Workshop

DEADWOOD – Deadwood History, Inc. will host a Magnet Workshop at the Days of ‘76 Museum on Saturday, May 13, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The workshop is $6 for museum members and $11 for non-members. The workshop is suggested for students in grades K-6. Call Shantel Pettit, Education Director, at 605-578-1657 for reservations or more information. Reservations are required.

Feel the pull and learn about magnets. Students will explore the science of magnetism, discover why magnetic poles attract and repel, and find out how a magnetic field works in the world around them. Participants will test which metals are magnetic and which ones are not, as well as the strength of different magnets. Children will complete a project using magnets to propel race cars around a track. They will also create refrigerator magnets to take home. Light refreshments will be served.

The workshop is co-sponsored by Deadwood History, Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Bill Haas, The William Karl and Laura L. Haas Educational Endowment, Spearfish Chamber, and The Walter and Francis Green Trust.


We inspire the global community by preserving and celebrating the cultural heritage of Deadwood and the Black Hills in the context of the American West through exceptional exhibits, innovative educational programs, and access to extensive collections in unique settings.
