Learn how writing began, how it changed over time, and how it changed the world forever through this hands-on program. Kids ages 9–12 help us “evolve” a writing script, while kids ages 5–8 take part in an interactive tale that describes how the alphabet was created and how it evolved. Try your hand at two of the world's most ancient written languages, from Mesopotamia and Egypt, and go on a tour of ancient writing in the galleries. Presentations and guided writing-themed tours begin at 1:30, 2 and 2:30 p.m.
