On Homecoming Weekend (UN Weekend & during the 5K Walk), we hope residents and students will participate in a neat school project we are currently planning. Students & residents will be encouraged to capture their home’s history and then share what they have learned using emerging technologies such as QR Codes and augmented reality sites like HistoryPin.
Of course not everyone is comfortable with these products, so we will be holding two evening work sessions at the MLHS Media Center to help Lakers scan their old photos and record audio tracks. There our student volunteers will help those print out QR codes that can be posted on your lawn during that exciting October 22nd weekend. Then while walking through town (or running the 5K), UN visitors, alumni, 5Kers seeking a break, and current residents can zap the codes and connect to your home’s rich history.
If you are interested send Frank Sanchez an email (email@example.com) and make sure to attend the work sessions on Tuesday, September 20th and Wednesday, October 5th. Both sessions begin at 7:30 PM. We hope to see you there!
