Superhighway Scholars is a classroom activity designed to complement the elementary-school state history curriculum. Inspired by Nam June Paik's monumental video installation Electronic Superhighway, students create their own collages of state historical and geographic facts. They then submit collages for posting in our student showcase, where the public can view their artwork.

The success of this project relies on teachers and students like you! While the activity is designed for the classroom, we also encourage any young person to create a collage that follows the student directions and submit it. Individuals should get their parent's permission before sending artwork.
