Petersburg students create interactive museum

Younger students at Petersburg’s Rae C. Stedman Elementary School had a field trip to a museum Tuesday – though the museum was just down the hallway in the school library, and the museum’s curators were all fifth graders.

Joe Viechnicki stopped by the school to speak with a few of the students and their teacher.
