The Tsongas Industrial History Center invites educators from across the U.S. to Lowell, Massachusetts, to apply to “Inventing America: Lowell and the Industrial Revolution”, a week long summer workshop funded by the We the People program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. This workshop is free of charge and all participants receive a $500.00 stipend for food and lodging plus a travel subsidy. Housing will be available at Lowell’s Doubletree Hotel.
The Inventing America workshop combines scholarly presentations with on-site investigations of the canals, mills, worker housing, and exhibits of Lowell National Historical Park. In addition to Lowell’s landmark resources, we will use drama, hands–on simulations, historical fiction, and field studies at Old Sturbridge Village, Walden Pond, and Concord, MA museums to bring history to life.
