DPTV Digital AdventureThe Detroit Historical Society is pleased to be a partner for Detroit Public Television's "Digital Adventure" Program.

Digital Adventure: Connected Learning for All Ages is a program that allows young people to document their learning outside the classroom by collecting electronic “badges” to store in an electronic “backpack.” Part of DPTV’s Education Department and with support from Community Telecommunications Network, the program is for all learners from pre-school to adult. 

The Detroit Historical Society offers two badges, one at each museum! Individuals and families are invited to uncover Detroit’s history. Become a “history traveler” as you explore museum exhibits and answer questions using our “Passport to Learning” booklet.
