Discovering Luna's World
Date; June 25 - 29 Where: Museum of Commerce Cost: $115
Led by Don Tristán de Luna, the first Spanish settlers in Pensacola braved the Gulf of Mexico and trusted their lives to an unknown land and future. A terrible hurricane destroyed Luna’s settlement shortly after the founding. Clues to this lost colonial past surround us today. Join professional historians and archaeologists from UWF to explore Pensacola’s colonial history and uncover clues about the lives of the many people who called this area home. Focusing on a real-life approach to uncovering the past, Discovering Luna’s World draws from all STEAM disciplines to encourage curiosity, creativity and problem solving! Engaging and fun activities include experimental archaeology investigations, historical research, archaeological and historical site tours and many other hands-on activities. Details are available through the UWF Continuing Education Program, https://uwf.edu/continuinged/departments/explore-summer-camps/camp-listings-by-grade/incoming-4th-grade/discovering-lunas-world.html
