Ms. Wyrosdick, 7th grade language arts teacher, is hosting a museum in honor of one of her favorite books, Hidden Figures, by Margot Lee Shetterly. The book is about four African American women (Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, Kathrine Johnson, and Christine Darden) who helped turn around the Space Race with their incredible knowledge, and power to fight. In class, the kids have been reading Hidden Figures. It is all coming to a big event on October 24 when Ms. Wyrosdick and all of her classes host the Museum of Innovation which will be in the library, and parents, other classes, and people of the community will be able to go to this event.

The kids are all doing topics of innovation, such as men and women who helped make some type of change or innovation in their field or industry. For example, the brave women in the army who changed a male dominated field, the amazing Tuskegee airman who flew in to help during WWII, and the great Jackie Robinson who hit a home run. When it comes to innovation, these men and women changed the world forever. The students have been working hard and doing extensive research on their topics.

Ms. Wyrosdick wanted to make a real-world connection with art and history. By making a museum, she gives kids a chance to interact with history and see how much these men and women changed the world. According to Annamarie Salvucci, 7th grade, they get to learn how to be curators. Ms. Wyrosdick put the kids in charge and made them head curators, just like at the Smithsonian. What Ms. Wyrosdick has done is let the kids enjoy but also learn about the “hidden figures” who have helped create the world we know today.
