The Archaeological Research Facility at U.C. Berkeley is committed to working directly with local schools to bring archaeology to the classroom. Archaeology is an interdisciplinary subject that uses history, math, science, art, literature, and cultural studies to investigate the past. From kindergartners to high school students and beyond, we hope to help people develop skills to think critically about the past.
The Public Outreach program arranges for graduate students from U.C. Berkeley to visit classrooms and community organizations in Berkeley and Oakland where they do a short (45 minute) introduction to archaeology. These interactive presentations are fun and involve hands-on activities such as a mock-dig for younger students, or showing real artifacts, tools, and slides to older students.
