PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Tonight, the students at Hamilton Middle School are putting together a "Social Studies Showcase."

The showcase features the West Virginia Wax Museum, Lego movies, student-designed countries, Frontier Settlements, a digital collage of World War Two, and much more.

The school also had 96-year-old Neece Rees, a "Rosie the Riveter", talk to students about her experience in World War II.

"I just wanted all the kids to be able to see how vibrant she still is, and what an inspiration she is," Jennifer Turner, a Social Studies Teacher at the school said. "Just the part that all the Rosie's played during World War Two is something that we don't see that much in today's society."

The showcase officially kicks off at 5 p.m. tonight and runs till 7 p.m.
All are welcome to attend.
