Who is responsible for this project & its research?
This project requires hours of research and team work. Twenty students in the New Open World Academy Geography class have been working for months researching historical websites, analyzing maps, learning the in's and out's of Quick Response codes, developing QR codes, and preparing for the launch of this website and our Community Tour Day. We welcome you to get to know the history makers of our project. *If you click on a student researcher's photo you can read their bios. Scroll to the bottom of this page for a video of how it was done.
