Learn with us

From distance learning to hands-on volunteer opportunities, we have a way for you to learn with us! Archeology is an interdisciplinary field that uses elements of math, earth science, life science, engineering, history, language arts, social studies, and geography. There’s something for everyone!

In addition to these online resources, Midwest Archeological Center staff work with schools and after-school programs to engage youth and offer community programs for lifelong learners. The National Park Service is committed to preserving our nation’s special resources (including archeological resources) for the enjoyment of all people—now and in the future.
