Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic; Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space; Louis Bleriot, the first man to fly the English Channel; and Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.Members of the public listened as wax sculptures came alive and described details of their adventurous lives.Primatologist Jane Goodall shared her years studying chimpanzees, Venetian trader Marco Polo recounted his worldwide travels, and navigator and colonizer Christopher Columbus voiced vivid tales of his voyages across the Atlantic Ocean.Fifth-grade teacher Kurt Adams is in his 21st year teaching at Aspen and 31st year as a teacher.He and fifth-grade teachers Jenny Diesburg-Lathrop and Maire O’Neill worked together with the students, preparing them for Wednesday's educational event.“This culminates the explorer unit the children have been studying in social studies,” Adams said.
