...go out to the Richard O. Ristine family. As Wabash President Pat White said, "He was the quintessential Wabash gentleman. ... He loved Wabash with a deep and abiding love and served the College in extraordinary ways over so many years. We will all miss him so very much." Godspeed Mr. Ristine.

"I liked to listen to my heart beat. It was neat. I liked the Before TV gallery. I didn't like carrying the 5 pounds of fat. It was heavy. I liked the switchboard. It was awesome!"
In addition to completing the Summer at the ^Carnegie Museum, Amelia also completed the summer reading program at the library. Amazing! So, to Amelia, we say congratulations!

Mostly today I was the cutter. I cut things out for just about everyone. It is more tiring than it looks. I got to use the spray glue a few times. It was really sticky. I also helped arrange some of the photos and information on the big red pieces of cardboard. I had a great time.
The best thing I have done today was I spray glued. I didn't get as sticky as I thought I would get, but I did spray glue my fingers together. After I got done with that I started cutting holes, into posters and hanging them up with fishing line, it was fun to do that.
I didn't work on the medicine exhibit, but I worked on the elements poster. I did fluorine, which is in fluoride and toothpaste. So, so far I have a great time and I can't wait to do it again.
When I started setting up exhibits at the Carnegie Museum the first thing I did was vacuum an area so an exhibit could be set up there. Then, I cut papers with a cutting board, so they could be placed onto an exhibit. Next, I went upstairs and put fishing line through holes in posters that were part of a medical exhibit then hung them up. I also moved stuff around and decorated a table (only with a table cloth). I had a fun time at the Carnegie, and I was glad that I got to miss a half day of school I hope to come back soon!
This has been a day of odd jobs. I fixed typos on papers and glued the project together. I worked with Connor on the Native American Project and it took a whole wall. I've still got spray glue on my fingers as I type this.
Today was fun! I had a HUGE project to work on. I did the exhibit on Native American Medicine. It filled up a whole wall and took us (me and Free) half of the day! When we spray glued I got it all over me!

I have like never ever written a blog before, so I'm just going to write and pray that I'm doing it right. When we first got to the Museum it was pouring rain, so Mrs. Hudson dropped us off at the door and we went inside. We entered directly into the Wow Room, and ironically the first word I said was wow. After we were introduced to the Museum and the people in it, we were schooled on how to be a good tour guide.
When that was over, my group headed upstairs to work. We found folders lying in several spots on the floor, our job was to take the contents of the folder and arrange it onto a board so it looked all nice and pretty. That part was pretty fun, we just sat on the floor and cut things out and talked. After we were all done with that, we went downstairs and to the Spray Glue. I was the first one to spray glue and it was fun, I just knew I was going to be sticky all day. The boards have turned out gorgeous and I can't wait to see them all hanging up and done. I can't wait until the opening to see it all done and ready. I can't wait to see everybody there, so hopefully you'll come too!!
Hey, this is Kayla B (a middle school student). I don't know how to blog, but this is a lot better then school! No offense Mrs. Maurer, Mrs. Meek, Mrs. Warren, or Mr. Linn. I've been here since 8ish and working like crazy and my knees hurt and I have like 5 minutes left so I'm trying to hurry. Hank and I have been working on Herbal Medicine thing, even though that's not what I worked on last year. Last year I did Marion Kirtley with Shannon . It was awesome! The spray glue is fuunnn! The Herbal Medicine exhibit is awesome. I made it pretty. There's lots of flowers and information about how they heal people. It's pretty sweet. But I'm out of time. You should come see it! March 1st peaceee!
Hello! My name is Madeline K (a middle school student). The Carnegie Museum was a very fun experience! I didn't get to come last year so it was fun to see all the work the other kids have done. It was very fun! The spray glue was very "interesting". I helped put together many posters and hang some things up. It was fun to hang out with friends and help Montgomery County educate our people!
Hi my name is Chandler P. (a middle school student). This is my first experience in blogging. This day has been very fun for me. We have set up so many exhibits. My favorite part was when Mrs. Fairfield showed us how to make the flippy things. In order to find out what I am talking about you have to come to the Carnegie Museum . Also we used spray glue. It was fun until I got myself sticky. Come and see it and look for the Roosevelt Hospital for Colored People seeing how it had been made by me!!!
So, it's not my first time working at the Carnegie. Last year, I helped install the Rockin' World of Geology and the Days of Dreadful Disasters that I helped create at school. This year, being an "experienced freshman" Mrs. Hudson came to me to see if I would be willing to take a full day off of school to help the little middle schoolers. I've had a lot of good experiences with the Carnegie exhibit installation and creation. It's a lot of fun, since you get to be the voice of the project. From it, you also learn a lot, not all about your topic, but also about the organization that goes into getting it all set up and put together. And, when opening day comes along, you have to be the expert. I think involving students is a great way to get the community involved in the museum, and it's fun.

My experiences at the museum have been really good. I have installed three exhibits that I have created and now I am on my fourth exhibit that I haven't exactly created. Working here at the Carnegie has been wonderful. All of the workers here are very nice and know what they are talking about. They have put in a lot of time to make this place look great and inform the people that come into the museum. If you want to know something that you don't know about today, come out and see the new exhibits that are in the museum now.

I didn't think this would turn out as well as it is. I thought it'd be pretty hectic, a bunch of kids running around with spray glue. Nothing of the sort. We were as organized as middle school kids could be with little supervision, and I think we did pretty well. Sticky is one word I would use to describe this. Right now my fingers are sticking to the keyboard because I touched too much of the glue. It was fun though. We had to work in groups that were just thrown together, ones we didn't think would work. But it turned out really good. We got along great and it was fun. Seemed shorter than it was.
Oh, warning for future generations: Fear Hudson's driving. And wear the seat belt. She could kill you from behind the wheel. Well, bye!

This is the first time I have ever written a blog. We are making posters and being very messy with spray glue. This is a lot better then sitting in a desk learning Science, or Social Studies. My project I worked on in 7th grade was Pioneer Medicines, and Cures. In my group were Elizabeth and Chloe. Though we didn't get a lot accomplished each day being best friends, we finally finished and it's awesome! It is raining outside today. It's a good day to be inside working on your project and being with your friends. You should come and see all the hard work we have done. It has taken a lot of time to do all of the projects all dealing with medicine. Come check out this museum! It's great. I will see you on opening day, March 1st!
My experience being at the Carnegie Museum was Amazing. Setting up was really fun! The people working at the Carnegie are really nice, and they would make your experience so much better!
I got to use spray glue for the first time and it was very interesting. I didn't think that putting a museum together would be so much fun!! I'm positive that if you were to come to the Carnegie you would enjoy it! And you would learn a lot! Trust me it's worth it!!!
