Needham High School Visit

October 22, 2013

A group of 50 high school seniors from Needham High School recently visited the Map Center as part of an interdisciplinary class called The Greater Boston Project. Students are investigating how historical individuals and groups from the 17th-21st centuries worked to effect change. The Needham students examined a variety of Boston maps over time and discussed what kinds of information the mapmakers were trying to communicate. They also examined 19th century maps of their home town of Needham.

We welcome groups of all ages to visit the Leventhal Map Center. Best of all, programs are FREE.
