Vanguardians featured at the Rubin Museum of Art

On November 12th, a class of 9th and 10th grade students from Vanguard High School arrived at the Education Center for their Artifact Investigation. Students, haltingly at first, shared what they had learned in class about the life of the Buddha and the part of the world in which Buddhism began. The conversations really got flowing as small groups of students were each given an object from the Touch Object collection to investigate. The students looked at a singing bowl, a statue of the Buddha, and other Tibetan Buddhist objects in depth before presenting their observations and hypotheses to their peers. The previously shy high school students were surprisingly eager to stand up in front of their classmates to talk about the interesting objects that they had explored.  More here:
