Elaborately planned over an intensive three-day time period, this was the country’s most momentous funeral since the burial of Abraham Lincoln.


    This exhibit includes the 15-foot-long flag that flew at half-staff above the Senate Wing of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. along with the St. Matthew’s Cathedral funeral program, mass cards, eulogies, photos, film footage, funeral remembrances from around the world and notes from Jacqueline Kennedy about how the funeral was to be arranged.

    stem in action: scribblebots

    Presented by Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

    Dates: November 1, 3, 15, 17, 29 or 30

    Times (CST): see schedule or by request available



    The perfect combination of science, engineering and technology, scribblebots are motorized machines that move in chaotic ways, leaving interesting artistic patterns in their wake. Collaborative teams of students will move through the Engineering Design Process by making simple circuits and offset motors, then test and manipulate variables. The result is an interactive robot that demonstrates the scientific concepts of electricity, force and motion with a wildly creative outcome.
