World War 1 on display
Students at Da Vinci High School welcomed the public to their annual World War I Museum Night earlier this month. Teams of students created exhibits depicting the role of each country during the great war and students acted as docents for guests. Exhibits explored the power of propaganda, the assassination that started it all, and even revealed the role of women in the war.
