About this event

Join Flip, Scholastic, and Lauren Tarshis, author of the New York Times bestselling I Survived series, for a thrilling journey into history and science as we explore the Wellington Avalanche of 1910, America's deadliest avalanche and train tragedy that changed transportation history. Through the story of this gripping event, students will learn about a boy who survived the event, plus the history of transportation, life in the early 20th century, the science of storms and avalanches, and explore themes of resilience and courage they can use in their lives.
