Live the dream, or die of dysentery

Remember getting a pass from math class to play the old computer game “Oregon Trail”? The WHC is proud to bring the classic game (but not math class!) to life in our competitive event,

“Oregon Trail Live”! OTL challenges teams of contestants to confront the difficulties of the Oregon Trail (as portrayed by the video game), from carrying 200 pounds of meat to running the rapids.

Winner of the Outstanding Museum Educator award from the Oregon and California Trails Association and supported by the computer game’s developer, Oregon Trail Live provides a unique and fun way to learn about the Oregon Trail—while avoiding that dreaded fate of death by dysentery!
