Science program geared toward girls, archaeology

Want to give your daughter a taste of what it means to be an archaeologist?

Girls ages nine through 14 can participate in an upcoming SciGirls program called “Digging Archaeology: Techniques for Finding and Preserving the Past” at The Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in the Pisgah Forest from 6 to 8 p.m Tuesday, July 26.

It is part of the monthly SciGirls series at PARI, and is affiliated with a national effort to engage girls in science sponsored by Twin Cities Public Television.

The July SciGirls program will explore the documentation process for archaeology. Girls will examine tools and techniques used in archaeology, and have the opportunity to explore a citizen science project headed by National Geographic.

PARI hosts a SciGirls event the last Tuesday of each month. $10 per student.
