Alfredo Parrilla and me (Gustin) at our Propeller Strike station at Right Whale Day, April 16, 2012)
As teen apprentices we do various tasks around the museum and have learned a variety of useful skills. We can do things such as leading a tour, setting up for events, and basic museum care taking have become common tasks for us to accomplish.
But what do other teen apprentices at other places do? As Whaling Museum teen apprentices we learn what other teen apprentices from other places do. These places include the Woods Hole Aquarium, the Franklin Park Zoo, and the Boston Science Museum. As a part of a mutual exchange, their teen apprentices come here for a day and we give them a tour and show them around the museum. In return they show us around and give us a tour of their work place. Its a great way to get to meet other teen apprentices and learn about their work. I can’t wait to meet the teen apprentices from Woods Hole, they should be arriving any minute!
