I agree with Sharon's assessment. Here is some text from the site:

Over the past two years, the Coulee Kids have conducted interviews with over 70 women in our community.

The Road She Traveled is brought to you by kids, hosted by the School District of La Crosse, and sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

Here's a description of one example of a video podcast by a seventh grade student on Margaret Larson:

Margaret Larson believes that history is extremely vital to the world and feels that people should know about the stories that aren’t always told. “Traveling is a way of life”, says Margaret. She thinks experiencing new places and meeting new people is a crucial factor in educating oneself about the past. Margaret recognizes that history is being created right now and life stories are entwined in a bigger picture. She captures these images in the stories she retells and encourages all of us to do the same. Learn More
