Spotlight:  Junior Docent Projects

One element of the Junior Docent program are S.M.A.R.T. projects.  These projects, which Smash Museums And Research Together, give Docents the opportunity to do real public history work, by researching a historical topic and presenting the information in a fun and engaging way.  Check out some of the amazing work our Junior Docents have completed this year!
