The Evolution of Manufacturing

 Our museum focuses on the evolution of manufacturing from the first iterations of the American System to the present day.  Most of the students who come to visit come as part of their history unit on the Industrial Revolution.






To explore the evolution of manufacturing, we use visual thinking strategies to examine images of manufacturing work through time. Students then use chronological thinking skills to organize the images and then discuss how work and manufacturing has changed.

                                     








Students have a context for the machines which they then examine on the exhibit floor. All sorts of contemporary issues come in to the discussion and students have much to ponder back at school.
