Leadership: Choose Your Own Way
October 20th, 2018 1:00pm
The National Museum of the Pacific War’s Nimitz Jr. Corps introduces youth to the values, innovations, and experiences of our Greatest Generation. Through fun games, exhibit exploration, art, and science the Nimitz Jr. Corps aims to create the next generation of history enthusiasts, museum stewards, and good citizens.
On Saturday October 20, 2018 join the Nimitz Jr. Corps to test your leadership and decision making skills. Children, ages 8-13, will spend the day in the National Museum of the Pacific War studying the leaders of the War in the Pacific and the tough decisions they made that ultimately led to victory. Corps members will be tested on how closely they paid attention to those lessons learned through a rousing game of “Choose Your Own Adventure!” Nimitz Jr. Corps is from 1:00pm-5:00pm and is free of charge. Participation is limited so please register by contacting Barbara Ford at 830-997-8700 ext. 225.
