About the Program
Students investigate how machines work together along a 1930s to 1950s salmon canning line, including a demonstration of the working machines. Using their knowledge of simple and complex machines, groups of students will each explore one complex machine in the Herring Reduction Plant and will present their interpretation of the machine to the rest of the class.
What to Wear
The Cannery is a historical site built on top of water, and does not have indoor heating. Please dress warmly! It can be very cool inside even when the temperature is pleasant outdoors.
The interpreters appreciate student name tags to help with asking questions, but this is not a requirement.
