Event description

Description

Can you imagine a world without writing? Learn how writing began, how it changed over time, and how it changed the world forever through this hands-on program. See real examples of cuneiform and hieroglyphs in the galleries, then try your hand at recreating these ancient scripts. Plus, kids ages 9–12 help us “evolve” a script, while kids ages 5–8 take part in an interactive tale that describes how the alphabet was created and evolved. Don’t miss this special Centennial Edition of Little Scribe, celebrating 100 years of pioneering research and discovery in ancient writing and languages at the OI!
