Archaeology in the Classroom

Archaeology in the Classroom is designed to bring interactive archaeology programs to students of all ages. The study of archaeology can be used as a pathway to teach students about science, math, social studies, literature, and our shared cultural heritage. An Archaeology in the Classroom program includes a brief overview of what archaeologists do, what archaeology is, and hands-on activities to reinforce archaeological concepts. 

 

Outreach Events

Looking for a speaker to come present on the subject of South Carolina cultural heritage? Interested in having hands-on activities at your next educational festival? Planning a summer camp related to history and culture? SCAPOD can help! From civic speaking engagements to multi-week programs for kids, we are experts in bringing the world of archaeology to you.

Creative Mitigation

If you are a professional archaeologist looking for creative mitigation projects, SCAPOD is available to assist. We can provide consultation on various methods of public outreach and  assist in the planning, production, and execution of creative mitigation projects.  Examples include, interpretive signs, brochures, site tours, volunteer excavators, and curriculum based material for classrooms.

 

 

Exhibit Design

SCAPOD wants to connect archaeological and museum collections with the people of South Carolina. Contact SCAPOD for assistance with cataloging, preservation, display, and presentation of your artifacts, documents, and data.

April 2018

This program was great! The presenter was very energetic and related the content directly to our standards. The students engaged in the activity and were even able to relate back to previously learned content in class. The hands-on activity was fun and a fabulous way to bring history to life!
