Young Public Historians

This will be a rather brief post. I just received my e-newsletter from Historica, and want to share something with my fellow public historians because I got a smile and a laugh out of the newsletter's content.

The Youth Links portion of Historica allows students to submit their essays, songs, and other multimedia projects and post them on the web. One in particular caught my attention. It is a stop-motion animation short using Lego figures to relate Samuel de Champlain's story. You can view it here.

The future looks bright for Canadian public history if students today are producing creative, amusing bits such as this one.
