2009 Summer Program

Jules Verne wrote Around the World in Eighty Days, not as science fiction, but as a story of the dramatic progress of 1872: the Suez Canal, and the cross-continental railroads that opened the world to adventurers and speed. Construct your own Reform Club and trophies from the Bombay, Calcutta,
Hong Kong, Yokohama and San Francisco of 1872. Join the class in building an 80 foot map of Phineas Fogg’s journey.
