ERLANGER – “There’s nothing cool about World War I,” instructor Ethan Palmer began. “It was horrifying and should never be repeated.”
It was a conflict that introduced the world to machine guns, chemical weapons and the inhuman life of trench warfare.
But it also brought about great advances in aviation.
On Aug. 21 about 20 kids from grades 6 to 12 participated in a program called STEAM Explorers at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Public Library. They came to learn about the history of World War I and to understand the secrets of flying.
