AIA & Skype a Scientist

The AIA encourages its professional members to participate in the Skype a Scientist program, an innovative program that matches scientists with classrooms all around the world. The AIA’s Code of Professional Standards stresses the importance of actively engaging with the public, and the Skype a Scientist program is a great way to present to groups who may not have a chance to meet an archaeologist.

You can sign up to participate on the Skype a Scientist website.
