Hi Violet,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia and sharing your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the interactive timeline!

Hi, my name is Suellen Alexander and I am a 4th grade teacher. Last year, I found this website and the students loved seeing the interactive timeline for the NC state symbols. I just went to this website because I am starting this unit again for this year. I can click on the different symbols to get information, however, the interactive timeline does not seem to be working. Can it be fixed?

Thank you for letting us know about the issue. I have informed the technical staff of NCpedia and hopefully they can get it working again soon.
