How have potatoes travelled the world? Learn about the origin, adaptation, and journey of the (not-so) simple potato. Discover how Indigenous people of the Andes Mountains developed more than 7,000 varieties, and create your own potato print to take home.

Part of a bi-monthly series of hands-on workshops focused on Indigenous innovations inspired by Native science and technology. Tinker, make, learn, and create. Themes and projects change every month. Recommended for ages 9 and up.
