Have you ever wondered how a dome is built? The first dome of the U.S. Capitol, completed in the 1820s, was made of wood and covered in copper. The magnificent dome we know today was completed in 1866 and is made of cast iron! In honor of The Fourth of July young learners will be introduced to the architectural significance and strength of domes by learning about the U.S Capitol current and past buildings. Afterwards we will work together to build domes of our own using newspaper, tape, and teamwork! Ages 6+. RSVP required. This indoor program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. Masks are required for indoor programs. For those who prefer the Zoom option for this in-person program, please email [email protected]
