Offered twice: Wed, Aug. 27, and Wed, Sept. 3, 2014. Homeschoolers are always welcome at Living History Farms! During the events on these two days, explore how food and nutrition have been a constant in history, from too little food to too much. Discover the impact that changes in technology had on how people produced, prepared, and preserved food that people ate. Learn also about how technology changed the tasks people did. Special demonstrations each day will allow you to learn about food and nutrition in history. How many calories do you burn off playing checkers vs. printing with a foot-powered press? How many horsepower does your body generate, compared to a tractor or car? How long does it take to turn cream into butter, or to cook in an open hearth vs. a microwave? Pre-registration is required: www.LivingHistoryFarms.org.

It's time to put that innovation on a path toward reality! During this hands-on workshop you'll take the first steps to move from "just an idea" to a "product that gets results." Organizations that innovate quickly begin by clarifying, experimenting, testing, and learning. These activities are critical to innovation success, yet are often over-looked. Using a thoughtful, yet rapid, process to kickstart innovation, will help your organization work more quickly and strategically, while minimizing the risks of launching something new.
