Students in Santa Barbara served as docents of a virtual tour of artifacts from the Henrietta Marie, a slave ship that sank off the Florida coast nearly 300 years ago that was on exhibit at the Karpeles Library in Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara students interacted face-to-face with their peers in Sacramento’s Elk Grove School District using the resources of the Digital California Project’s high-performance network. Later, the Sacramento students shared their expertise on life in migrant camps.
