Partnering with our community is a core tenet of ours, and our school-community partnership with the Campbell Historical Museum and Campbell Union School District is another example of this. Some of our TK-8 students throughout the district are putting the history—and the future they imagine—of our district on display in the museum’s Ainsley House/Carriage House as part of the district’s centennial-themed Design Challenge. 

Some 600 students have been researching, designing and refining their exhibits about the past, present and future of local schools and education. Classes across the district have been using design thinking and engineering design processes to create the museum exhibits. 

“We’ve been anticipating and planning for this event for some time and are excited to see this connection to the community and commitment to innovation come to life,” said Superintendent Shelly Viramontez. “Our students are collaborating, innovating, problem-solving, and developing skills they’ll need for their future jobs, all while learning about our district’s past, appreciating our present and imagining what the future will bring.”

If you’re going…

  • Bring your smartphone to the exhibit, as many of the projects have a QR code for visitors to scan for multimedia explanations.
  • Parking is available at nearby public lots.
