Doing History at Plimoth
While an intern at Plimoth Plantation, Nicole Perkins spent the summer experiencing the ups and downs of working in a first-person interpretation museum. While she assisted in giving occasional tours and working with visitors as a third-person interpreter, her main role as an Education and Public Programs Intern was in the development and execution of five different summer camp programs. Focusing on how culture and history meet in the 17th century, Nicole used both of her majors to teach children the full story of settlement in the New World.
