Art, History Students Learn While Having Fun

Students in the class built Waco CG-4 U.S. combat gliders from World War II and held a contest on the final day of the semester to see which plane would glide the furthest. “History is more than mental exercise; it is also tactile and experiential,” said Dr. Livingston. “The students linked the models that they built to their research papers.” LSC-Montgomery offers a variety of history courses in both the upcoming summer and fall semesters.
