History Learning Lab

Press Release: North Andover High School History Learning Lab and Archive

The objective of the North Andover High School History Learning Lab and Archive are twofold; first we would like to create a History Learning Lab where students can through hands on experience; live, touch, and see history in action.  The History Learning Lab will allow teachers at North Andover High the opportunity to expose their students to historical artifacts and resources so their students can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of historical artifacts. Instead of reading about history in a textbook they can touch and experience history for themselves.  Our second objective will be to create an archive that will house primary sources and artifacts relating to North Andover, Johnson High School, and North Andover Public Schools. We hope to collect, document, and use sources and artifacts related to local history. We are looking for donations of pictures, artifacts, and other materials from the time period 1860-1980.  If you are interested in donating please contact Brian Sheehy at historyball@yahoo.com or call 978-790-5707.
