Does your school have videoconferencing capabilities? Not sure? Ask your school's IT director or the person at your school who helps you with your computers. If your school does have videoconferencing capabilities, you can schedule a 50-minute, live Virtual Field Trip with The National WWII Museum.
Today's televisions, computers, and cell phones can
all trace their origins to technological advancements realized
during WWII. Other facets of our modern lives owe a debt to WWII,
too: modern building materials, ways of teaching and learning, even
the way your supermarket stocks its shelves. Students explore a top
ten (and a bottom five) list of WWII science and technology and then
work in teams to complete a creative design project.
Appropriate for grades 7-12 social studies and science classes. Cost: $100. Pre- and post-program curriculum materials included.
