High school students turn campus into WWI museum

Central Coast New-Tech High School students took a step back in time.

Wednesday night they turned their campus into a World War One museum.

Students put what they're learning in class into action. It took them a few weeks to build.

They created different exhibits about the great war and they're acting as docents to visitors.

Freshman Abigail Pole worked on the project. She told KSBY News, "Now I am seeing all the people appreciating it, everyone is happy, we're all smiling. It makes me feel real good, just to know that all the work we put into this is really reaping rewards and I will remember this a lot better than I will memorizing facts for a test."

Their goal was to capture the causes and consequences of WWI. Projects ranged from digital components like photo essays, to literary ones like letters from soldier's perspectives.
