Children entering grades 4–6

Monday–Friday, August 9–13, 9:30–10:30 am ET

Instructor: Andy Majewski

Hear from people from four thousand years ago by looking at the objects they left behind. Meet the ancient Egyptians, Maya, Mesopotamians, and others through live, small-group Zoom sessions, and explore how objects in the museums tell their stories. Together, we’ll try some archaeology activities, use 3D models and augmented reality, and discover hidden objects within the exhibits of two different museums. A Harvard archaeologist will join us for select days!


Advance registration required. Please note that registration closes August 2. Fees: $63 members/$70 nonmembers
