What happens to the speeches students prepare as projects at your school? Imagine if your speech givers dressed up as the character they were researching, stood frozen in place like a wax model, and then when a coin was placed in a tin they came to life and gave their one minute speech. Each time another student or visitor adds a coin their speech is repeated.

This novel educational approach has been used by St. Pius X / St. Leo School for 10 years as part of their Famous Scientists Wax Museum. Fifth grade give the speeches and Kindergarten to eighth grade tour the ‘museum’ with their coins. The money raised is then donated.
