SFCM exhibit celebrates Manhattan Project historian

-A A +A

The Santa Fe Science Initiative and the Santa Fe Children’s Museum announces the opening of the exhibit “Cultivate the Scientist in Every Child: The Philosophy of David and Frances Hawkins.”
The exhibit was designed at the Hawkins Centers of Learning in Colorado and features panels describing the Hawkins’ work in science education and observations of children and teachers, as well as hands-on activities for children ages 2-10. The exhibit will be at the museum through Feb. 9.
Originally from New Mexico, David Hawkins, a philosopher and mathematician, was the official historian of the Manhattan Project. After World War II, he collaborated with other renowned scientists to create the first inquiry science curriculum in the United States: Elementary Science Study.
Santa Fe Science Initiative (SFSI), a not-for-profit organization, has been providing professional development for teachers in Northern New Mexico schools since 2001. SFSI brought the exhibit to Santa Fe to educate the community and about science curriculum presently being used in Northern New Mexico schools and to enrich families’ experiences at the museum with Hawkins-inspired activities.
