*Igloo Build*
February 15, 2014
Learn the inside scoop of building a simple-yet-elegant igloo and other
snow dwellings from expert Dr. Bert Yankielun. Come experience Igloo Build,
one of the longest-running traditions at the Museum. Learn how to build an
insulated, sturdy house, strong enough to support the weight of a polar
bear. Dubbed the #1 Way to Winter Fun by Yankee Magazine (Jan ’09) and a
“Top 10 Winter Event” in 2009-2010 by the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, the
Igloo Build is fun for the whole family. The host of the event is Dr. Bert
Yankielun, engineer and author of the book How to Build an Igloo and Other
Snow Structures. Join him on the Museum grounds at 10:30 a.m. for a
demonstration. You’ll learn the structural secrets of building with snow,
from making an initial snow angel to placing the final block on the dome to
sawing yourself out. Then try your own hand at building an igloo! Indoor
activities and presentations included throughout the day. (Outdoor
activities are dependent on snow cover).
