Who (Was) Were…Early 20th Century Stars?

From Amelia Earhart to women in WWII, from Marie Curie to Jackie Robinson, explore the many frontiers of the early 20th century! Build a plane like Earhart’s and compare her flights to those of Charles Lindbergh. Stake a claim and build a shack in Hooverville, then create your own hobo language. Design your own pennant to cheer your hometown teams in the 1944 World Series in St. Louis’ Sportsman Park. Challenge yourself at codes like the WWII “Code Girls.” Want more sugar than your WWII ration book allows? Can peaches! From walking and wagons during the Dust Bowl to high-tech planes and cars: Change IS the frontier!
