It was a day of sharing and learning for students from 11 high schools across the state.
They presented the history projects they’ve been working on.
This is a video made by the team from Waianae High School.
The students had to pick a current topic that’s related to the lessons of WWII.
“Japanese they needed resources right, something about that. And homeless don’t have resources,” said Waianae High School freshman Miah Nahina.
“Their inspiration was we had to come up with something like conflict over resources so we just had this big brain storming session about what conflicts are there over resources in our community and the blaring obvious one was right next door,” said Waianae High School teacher Michael Sturm.
This is all part of the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii’s new program teaming up with the National Park Service to inspire students to use history to change the world.
