For this hands-on trade-stravaganza, OI educator Calgary Trautman-Haines and Smart Scholar Katerina Stefanescu will lead a virtual tour of the OI Museum and Smart Museum’s collections of coins and trading tools. Then, use your new knowledge to craft your own coins to trade within your own household.
