Last year around this time, AV applied to the SC Aquarium for an internship. We’ve (and I mean “we” because he must have an adult with him until he is 16) diligently been assisting patrons with the touch tank and the trading post. In the past few months, the Education staff placed us on the research side of some of the items at the trading post.
Recently AV has been working to ID all the rocks and semiprecious stones at the trading post. The trading post is a bit like the arcade store. Here you bring in items that you’ve found in nature or are recyclable. We rate them by a points value and you can trade for other items you might want.
AV enjoys his work.
