Archaeology Outreach

Make history, art and science come to life through this evidence-based learning experience! Kimberly comes to your school with programs stressing STEAM as we need art! She offers K-9 programs including actual student excavations. She works with you to secure state grants, foundation grants and local funding. Some titles include: Can You Dig it?; Asian Temple Architecture; and Forensic Archaeology. All programs are experiential and hands-on! Have your students create an culminating art or science project with an archaeologist in their classroom!  There are actual artifacts and samples for students to handle, examine and make observations about their origin. These include 5000 years old art objects for your students to sort, draw and record just as archaeologists do around the world. Kimberley is a Harvard University trained archaeologist and has been working with schools for over 10 years.
