The week of December 2nd, MOA welcomed Lindsay, a high school student from Alymer who spent a week taking part in a job shadowing experience.
Lindsay enjoyed her time at MOA where she worked with our collections and helped with educational programming.
Lindsay learned how to use PastPerfect software which is used to catalogue the collection. She handled artifacts and learned how they were stored for archival purposes. She even had a unique chance to tour Sustainable Archaeology. At the end of the week, she was more involved with educational programming, helping with pottery and soapstone pendant workshops and even sat in on some tours.
Have a listen to an interview between Jennifer (MOA’s Public Relation officer) and Lindsay about her time at MOA.
