SSC "Wax Museum" intertwines history, technology

04-25-2013 (SSC) - It's a treat at SSC when a student finally reaches the 4th grade.  That's because the students then get to participate in the school's highly-anticipated "Wax Museum."

The Wax Museum enables students to bring notable, historical figures to life - after weeks of research.  This year's "Wax Museum" featured several people including Samuel Adams, Pocahontas, Betsy Ross, George Washington and others.

Physical tours of the museum have been augmented this year by virtual tours, thanks to the app "Aurasma," which bills itself as an "augmented reality" app.  Students have honed research, art and public speaking skills through this app - which even drew the attention of FOX 6 WBRC Education Anchor Sarah Verser:
