Eighth grade social studies teacher Jeannette Maresma said, “This year’s exhibit included information especially pertinent to the lives of many of our students. One student looked at the modern migration panel about the 1980 Muriel Boatlift and told her teammates, ‘This is what my Grandpa was telling me about!’ The students also enjoyed the new interactive component, QR codes on the panels that linked the students to relevant videos.”
In addition to classroom tours, a special open house is planned on Tuesday, October 3, at 6:00 pm in the school media center during the School Advisory Committee meeting so parents and friends can view the exhibit.
This museum for Florida schools was created by the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West and funded, in part, by a grant from the State of Florida’s Bureau of Historical Resources. “We wanted to expand the reach of Florida’s maritime stories,” explained the museum’s CEO Melissa Kendrick. “The concept of a Pop-Up Museum seemed the perfect match to reach new audiences.”
Marathon High will host the exhibit until October 5, a shortened tour due to the missed school days, but will have an opportunity to re-schedule the event for later in the school year.
