Overview

Learn hands-on what it takes to be an archaeologist!

This free STEM-based camp, generously funded by Alliant Energy, was originally to be offered to students in grades 3 through 5 in May of 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the in-person camps were canceled and this online version was produced.

 

Watch a series of 6 videos, appx. 45 minutes total. ​Students may do the hands-on activities right along with the videos! The curriculum guide helps you prepare the materials.
