Welcome to the Archaeological Research Institute! Our field trip aims to provide students with a hands-on experience in the laboratory, where they will uncover the fascinating stories behind ancient artifacts. Here’s a description of the activities they will engage in during their visit:
Throughout the field trip, experienced archaeologists and instructors will be available to guide and assist the students. They will provide explanations, answer questions, and facilitate discussions, encouraging the students to actively engage with the artifacts and develop a sense of curiosity about the past.
By the end of the field trip, students will have gained practical experience in artifact analysis and will have a better understanding of how archaeological research contributes to our knowledge of ancient civilizations. They will also appreciate the importance of careful observation, scientific inference, and experimental approaches in the field of archaeology.
All necessary equipment will be provided for the field trips, but please wear attire that you don’t mind getting dirty, as we will be engaging in activities that can cause clothes to get dirty or stained. It is also appreciated if you wear closed-toed shoes and long pants, as the some activities take place outdoors or in a laboratory environment.
Attention, teachers! Don’t forget to inquire about our field trip grants and determine the eligibility of your students/school for potential benefits!
Thanks to the generous support of the United Way of Southeast Indiana and the Home City Ice Family Foundation, ARI Field trip grants are now available. These grants specifically cater to the transportation needs and lunch expenses of students residing in Southeast Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Ohio. By utilizing these funds, ARI is able to offer field trip experiences on a donation basis, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning about the historical cultures of our region. We extend our gratitude to the United Way and the Home City Ice Family Foundation for making this possible!
