Back to School: A Review of the Southeast Archeological Center’s Focused Efforts in the Fields of Outreach, Education, Engagement and Relevancy
Author(s): Thadra Stanton
This is an abstract from the "NPS Archeology: Engaging the Public through Education and Recreation" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
On-going efforts to increase outreach, education, engagement and relevancy for the Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) over the past 8 years have resulted in the increased visibility of SEAC, the National Park Service, and archeology. SEAC has worked with educators through the Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program to develop lesson plans. SEAC staff have participated in local and regional events geared towards science or the outdoors. SEAC has also developed Girl Scout Resource Ranger weekends that are focused on archeological resource stewardship.These events along with posters, stickers, bookmarks, traveling exhibit, as well as incorporating outreach into more projects, and other materials have culminated in higher numbers of visitor contacts than SEAC had experienced previously.
