Highschoolers Create a Disability History Museum

A group of students from Waltham, Massachusetts collected artifacts and documents to create a museum exhibit on the history of disability in America. Displays include one of the first hearing aids which looks like a standard set of headphones and a section dedicated to Society’s Attempt at Erasing Disability.  The students looked into the nearby Fernald School, once known as a leading home for children with disabilities – until researchers experimented on young boys by feeding the radioactive Quaker Oats. “Not for any reason other than to track where the oats were going through their body, to prove that Quaker Oats were good for you.” The 35 design and history students make the case that history victimized people with disabilities a lot.
