If you were to give a tour of your school, what would you show: the trophy case, the class pictures through the years, a memorial bench? At Discovery, we often take people to the dinosaur replica in the lobby or the shark couch on the sixth floor. Sometimes people want to see the boardroom where big decisions are made.
Unless architecture is the particular focus, I would argue that what makes a building special is what’s inside: the people, the artwork, the history.
On Monday, December 16th, at 1:00pm EST, Discovery Education is starting Of the People: Live from The White House, a series of Livestream events, which will stream directly from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW (a.k.a. The White House). Students who join us will get behind-the-scenes looks at this historic building, starting with the art and history contained inside. Hosted by a student and featuring the White House Curator, William Allman, this event promises to be exciting!
Also, we invite you to take a selfie in front of a special historical, inspirational, or artistic element at your school and share it with the hashtag #OfThePeople. We’ll be looking for your selfies!
