Education/Interpretation intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Hot Springs, SD
“I feel like this opportunity allowed me to explore the different roles that a museum can offer. The Mammoth Site is more than a museum because it is a working paleontological site that offers many opportunities for research and education. It was a privilege to work with specialists in a variety of disciplines. This internship not only provided me with museum experience, it provided me with a better understanding of how I want to develop my career for the future. ”
