We are an "umbrella" museum that contains 4 museums, 2 of which are the Museum of Geology and Paleontology and the Archaeological Research Center.
This event will be promoted to parents and children and will cover archaeology-geology-hydrology-paleontology.
We will have mock digs (including some in our 4 museum-based dig boxes); an archaeological "scavenger hunt" in the museum, a ground water simulator activity, paleo activity trunks, an inflatable geodome which will featured UNIVIEW technology to teach about geological features, and activity tables related to fossils, rocks and minerals, earthquakes and volcanoes.
We will also show short films about archaeology and earth science in rotation on the screen in our Wells Fargo Theatre.
