Video Highlights Internships at Old Sturbridge Village

Smith College, a liberal arts college in Massachusetts, recently highlighted the internships of two students at Old Sturbridge Village in a well-produced online video.  Yup, they had these nice college students wearing 19th century clothes in 19th century buildings (with 21st century flies) cooking on an open fire, making cheese, and working in the dye pit to learn about life in the 19th century–and about museums.  Smith College provides the funding for the internships through their Praxis program, allowing students to explore careers they may not have considered otherwise.  Thanks to Sandy Lloyd for sharing this!
