Grand Canyon National Park's free distance learning programs offer students an exciting introduction to the science behind the park.

The Human Story presents Grand Canyon's rich history over the last 12,000 years. Through a live and interactive lesson with park rangers via the Internet, students journey back through time as they learn to look at the landscape through the eyes of an archaeologist. The program lasts about one hour.

How to Participate

Schools must have video conferencing capability to dial the park's IP address at the scheduled time, or they can participate online via Skype.
