Poolesville HS Students Return

Each year, students from the Poolesville Magnet High School in Montgomery County come to JPPM to experience archaeology first-hand, and we are always happy to see these bright, inquisitive kids! This year, they helped to excavate at the Smith’s St. Leonard Site, toured the MAC Lab, and visited our FAQ exhibit in the Visitor Center to learn the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about archaeology. They also had the opportunity to speak with professional archaeologists, curators, and conservators here at the Park to learn about what we do and how we do it. We enjoyed showing them the ropes and look forward to their next visit!
