Aviation Showcase Welcomes Local Children

April 5, 2012

The interactive museum was presented by OBU students in the Social Studies Methods course, taught by Dr. Jeanne Akin, professor of education. For more than 20 years, OBU's Division of Teacher Education has hosted the semi-annual social studies project for local fifth-grade students. The OBU community was invited to also walk through the museum and see the creative endeavors of the OBU education majors while watching the children learn about the important history lessons.

Akin said the project not only brings history alive for the education majors, but it also helps them develop a passion for finding meaningful ways to make it come alive for their future students.
