POTSDAM — “Sticks, Stones and Bones: Archeology Dig with the Children's Museum” will be held Saturday, Oct. 14 with Dr. Tim Messner of SUNY Potsdam.

Learn about the most ancient forms of technology--tools that helped past people survive and thrive. These tools are made of materials found in nature. Stone that could be shaped into arrowheads, spear points or knives. Sticks rubbed together to make fire.

Clay from a riverbank that could be shaped and fired into cooking pots. As part of our workshop, participants will become toolmakers! The program is held at the University Bookstore, 39 Market St., from 12:30 until 2 p.m. for children in grades K-5.

The cost is $10 per participant. Register through [email protected] or 315-267-2167. Walk-ins welcome if space is available.

Caregivers are required to stay during the program. Need based discounts available. For more info contact [email protected].
