Does your child fancy becoming an archaeologist? The Australian Museum is running a workshop for children aged nine to twelve across two days called Scientist for A Day: Archaeologist . Children who attend this workshop will embark on a scientific and archaeological journey, led by Honorary Associate Professor Doctor Judith Field.

During this workshop, your child will get to discover the world of archaeology and dive into the depths of history beyond the written records and books in a practical experience. Your child will get the chance to unravel the mystery of ancient artefacts and what they were used for with an expert in the field.

Children will learn about First Nations archaeology with Judith, as well as what a typical day looks like for her through hands-on activities where you step into the shoes of an archaeologist, and learn about the intricate process of piecing together fragmented objects - which make up many archaeological finds.

Children will also get to examine toys and tools from the past and get a first-hand understanding of the meticulous work done to uncover the past. Not only that, but they will also get to go behind the scenes to see the collection lab in this unique opportunity that will ignite their curiosity and give an insightful glimpse into the world of archaeology at the Australian Museum.

This workshop will be held from 9.30am until 3.30pm on the 11th and the 12th of January in the Lower Ground Patricia McDonald Education Rooms. It is $120 for members and $150 for non-members.
