    In all fairness, they’re very nice pics. It’s evident the kids worked hard on that.

    What a phenomenal set of exhibits and experience for the students. I visited today and learned quite a bit, including just how much the students and teachers must have prepared because each “museum guide” was as knowledgeable as a guide in any museum in a metropolitan centre. The public speaking ability shown while touring the displays was exceptional! I was so glad I went!
