Join us in a one day, hands-on training, in which you will:
Investigate the history of Greek trireme technology and its impact on society, culture, politics and economics, as well as explore the influence these same factors had on the technology itself.
Learn about ancient naval warfare from a professional Historian, gain access to free IDM resources including primary and secondary source materials, and participate in a hands-on activity with guidance and insight from a world history teacher.
Leave with an action plan in hand, which will empower you to incorporate the history of technology, and its social context, in your classroom.
