Storrs Campus

The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Connecticut Archaeology Center, part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UConn, will hold a weeklong archaeology field school for kids from Monday, June 29 through Friday, July 3, 9 am to 12 noon. The field school is part of the University of Connecticut’s Kids Are Scientists & Engineers Too program.

Do you like uncovering evidence to solve mysteries? Do you like getting your hands dirty exploring the outdoors? Spend a week with UConn archaeologists exploring the world of field archaeology. You will learn about the science, tools, and methods used by genuine archaeologists and be part of a real archaeological field crew. Participants will be doing hands-on fieldwork and laboratory research at a professional, ongoing archaeological dig. We have been opening new areas of our on-campus dig site each year, and every session we uncover something new!

The fee is $200 per student ($180 if registered before June 6th), and is open to students entering grades 5 through 10. Advance registration is required. This adventure is offered through UConn’s Kids Are Scientists & Engineers Too program. To register contact K.A.S.E.T. at (860) 486-8115 or visit
