SQCC Hosted Students from Medina Montessori Elementary School

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

On Wednesday 27 September, SQCC hosted a class of fourth and fifth graders from the Medina Montessori elementary school in Fall’s Church, Virginia. SQCC staffer and intern guided the students through both the permanent cultural exhibit and the temporary exhibit entitled “From Sinbad to the Shabab Oman: Oman’s Seafaring Legacy” fielded questions from the students about Omani shipbuilding and cultural traditions native to the country. The students browsed through the five powerpoint presentations about varying Omani ports and learned about tools and materials that were used to build Omani ships nearly one thousand years ago.

Photos from the tour can be viewed here.
