Nearly 330 students attended Gopherbaloo 2018 at the University of Minnesota’s Wilson Library on January 13. The annual event is part of National History Day MN.

National History Day is an inter-disciplinary research project for students in grades 6-12. History Day teaches students to:

  • Conduct in-depth research
  • Use primary and secondary sources
  • Read a variety of texts
  • Analyze and synthesize information
  • Write and present historical content

Students choose a topic that relates to an annual theme, research that topic, and present their research in one of five presentation categories: Research Paper, Exhibit, Documentary, Performance, or Website. Students may then enter their projects into History Day competitions at school, regional, state, and national levels.
