Multiple four-week-long workshops are offered throughout the year. Each series allows learners to deepen their connection to ideas inspired by the museum. The workshops are facilitated by museum staff and community members.
Archaeology of Rainforests
In this fall home learners block, we will explore the many difficulties encountered by archaeologists studying Maya ruins in the damp and densely forested environment of the rainforest. Home learners will have the opportunity to discover topics such as underwater archaeology and conservation, and continuously test their knowledge through experimental archaeology.
What a Disaster!
With 660 million years of shifting earth and changing climate, BC has a long and rocky history, full of natural disasters. Through exploration and experimentation, this spring home learner’s series will investigate and discover historical and contemporary natural disasters, as well as the earth mechanics behind them.
