Every Tuesday, join these 30-minute sessions—perfect for kids in elementary to middle school—to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, and anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects you can try at home!

Using collection artifacts, participants will learn about Indigenous games from North, Central, and South America to understand the rules, significance, and connections to games still played today.
