KID INVENTOR 2.0

Through November 2020

Remember when (bad) adults used to say, “Why don’t you go out and play in the traffic, kid?”  Well, definitely don’t do that!  Visit the Museum of the Great Plains for a much safer, far more educational alternative.  “Kid Inventor” features a LEGO car raceway, game programming studio, do-it-yourself construction area, paper airplane shooter, and more.  Each activity reinforces STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, including design, assembly, testing, and improvement.  It’s so much fun, you’ll forget that you’re learning!

MILDRED DOUGLAS & PAT CHRISMAN:

FROM CIRCUS AND SILENT SCREEN TO TRAINED GOATS AND NURSING

Through December 31, 2020

In her later years, Mildred Douglas worked as a nurse at Comanche County Memorial Hospital in Lawton, Oklahoma.  Except for scrapbooks and memorabilia, her coworkers might never have known she and her late husband, Pat Chrisman, were once stars of the silent screen, as well as performers in rodeos, circuses, and more.  Together, they had been nationally known!  Learn more about these two fascinating people.
