Our event will showcase hands-on activities that will excite youth and families (archaeological storytime, shoebox excavations, vase painting) and presentations on digital applications in archaeology (virtual reality, 3D scanning and printing, digital modeling of the built environment) that will appeal to advanced students and adults. In addition, we have a walking architectural tour of the ‘acropolis’ of Pittsburgh that highlights Classical architectural forms and ideals in contemporary society. Admission is free.
