Archaeology Adventure Week at Tellus Science Museum graphic

ARCHAEOLOGY ADVENTURE WEEK
Monday, June 21 – Friday, June 25, 2021
9:30 AM – 12 PM

FOR AGES 8+, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Price: $100

Advance registration open to members only until Friday, June 4, 2021. Registration closes at noon on Friday, June 18, 2021 or when the workshop reaches maximum capacity. Advance registration is required; limited space available. Cancellation policy: 48 hours before for full refund.

Come join us for a one-week archaeology-themed adventure workshop led by Megan Kilgore, a 5th year anthropology PhD candidate at Emory University and assisted by Tellus Science Museum educators.

Participants 8+ years old will learn to think like an archaeologist through activities such as a mini excavation, artifact analysis, and basic stone toolmaking. Participants will also explore the Weinman Mineral Gallery and learn the history of the indigenous peoples of Georgia.

Children who sign up for the workshop will also have the opportunity to participate in Ms. Kilgore’s dissertation research on how children learn to make stone tools. Enrollment in the study is not required for enrollment in the workshop. Please contact Ms. Kilgore at mbeney@ emory.edu for more information regarding the research study.
