Free Program for Middle School Students Explores Museum Careers


BISMARCK, N.D. –"Museum Underground: Creating Exhibits," April 20, 4 p.m., will help participants think about their own skills and interests as they learn about possibilities of careers in museums and collections. The program will include touring behind the scenes and hearing from specialists about collecting and storing old things, how knowledge about the past can help us understand today’s world, and how museum exhibits are built. Register for the free 45-minute program at MUgMuseums.eventbrite.com.

This session is part of an interactive program that introduces middle school students to careers at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. "Museum Underground" sessions help participants think about their own skills and interests as they learn about careers in museums. Students talk with museum professionals and tour behind-the-scene spaces that are typically not open to the public.

Programs are sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota and are led by Stephanie Schick, a gallery guide at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum. She is a graduate of Northern Arizona University who previously worked as an educator at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque, Iowa. Schick, who has a passion for history, science, and education, loves to travel and has also taught at schools in Kenya and Egypt.

For more information, contact Curator of Education Erik Holland, 701.328.2792. Registration is required for all Museum Underground programs. For more programs sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota, go to statemuseum.nd.gov/events.
