Museum

All current “exhibits” (courses, mini-courses and lessons) are listed below. Some exhibits include videos. Although the videos are fascinating on their own, they are used to demonstrate specific topics presented in the printable lesson or are required to successfully complete one of the lesson projects.  Only the projects that need videos are listed.  The remainder of the project relies on content presented within the printed materials.
