Monticello Tour: Inventions & Innovations


On April 1, 2019, C4K youth and staff discovered Monticello through the lens of inventions and innovations.

We had a wonderful experience learning new things about Jefferson’s inquisitive mind and life as a continuous learner, including his architectural designs and his polygraph machine.

When asked, “What did you most enjoy about today’s visit?”, Eva, a C4K member replied, “Everything…But, the polygraph was really impressive.”

Isaiah shared, “If Jefferson had a computer, he’d probably take it apart, figure out how it works, and make it better.”

Thanks to our tour guide, Stu, for creating such a personalized experience for us. Also, thanks to Faye and Linnea for providing the opportunity for us to visit and be inspired.
