Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators! Join these 30-minute sessions—perfect for elementary to middle school kids—to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, or anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects you can try at home!

Artifacts share clues that help us learn about world cultures. Step into the role of an archaeologist to unpack the interesting information that artifacts can tell us just by using your eyes. Learn to decode secrets about artifacts by closely observing, questioning, and talking about them. Bring along a pencil and paper to track your field notes as we look closely at objects from South Asian countries.
