Graduate Students Participate in Night at the Museum

Saturday, March 4 was the 12th annual Night at the Museum community event hosted by the Graduate School at The University of Alabama.

The program brought graduate students from various academic departments to the Museum of Natural History, where they hosted interactive stations catering to young people from the Tuscaloosa area.

The Department of History sent six volunteers: Joey Dykes, Brian Martin, Brianna Meyer, Genesis Ranel, Milum Richardson, and Filipe Robles.

This year’s theme, “Around the World,” provided a great opportunity to get children interested in history by playing a game and coloring maps related to the stories of famous travelers like Hernando de Soto, Leif Eriksson, and Hasekura Tsunenaga.
