Join the Cooper Center and OC Parks for Science in the Park, a free educational fun event for the whole family, at the Irvine Regional Park on Saturday, April 29 from 10 am to 4 pm.
Uncovering artifacts can be an exciting adventure! Deciphering how objects were used, who might have used them, and other aspects of their context helps children to think about the commonalities between different cultures and heritages. Children who learn about archaeology have a greater appreciation for sites that are historically and culturally significant.
