Educational Seminar Series

AITC’s Speaker Series delivers messages of history, preservation and imagination to a variety of audiences. We connect audiences with leading experts in their field through including keynotes, panel discussions, joint presentations, and through an array of digital options such as promo videos.

Every third Friday of each month at Sandy Spring Museum an expert gives an educational lecture on various topics; ranging from archaeological sites, historic preservation, history of architecture, to curation of personal collections. Past topics include: The Hampden Community Archaeology Project, The Hidden History of a World War II Interrogation Center, and The Archaeology of Standing Structures.

Population(s) Served

In association with local universities, AITC creates professional development workshops for college students who are interested in pursuing careers in archaeology and anthropology. Workshops include but aren’t limited to lectures, mentoring, resume writing and career preparation. AITC provides opportunities for bilateral discussion, career planning, goal setting, and feedback. Additionally, we connect students to archaeological resources and networks both regionally and nationally.

Population(s) Served

In accordance with school administrators and teachers, AITC is happy to host after-school archaeology clubs. Archaeology Club is for students, ages 9-13, and is free to attend. The program uses demonstrations, hands-on workshops and field trips to teach students the core tenants of archaeology. Club schedules are flexible.

Population(s) Served

Over the course of four weeks, students work with AITC archaeologists to explore archaeology as a profession and a practice. AITC teaches archaeology as it developed as a field, techniques used to gather archaeological data, and how data are analyzed to interpret the past. Through a series of lectures, interactive workshops, and development of a group project, lessons and group work are centered on community histories appropriate for student groups.

Population(s) Served

Our signature activity, AITC archaeologists will work with organizational leaders (teachers, community groups, etc) to tailor our archaeology program to best engage with the age group and overarching goal of the organization. Mock excavations and hands-on learning will encourage critical thinking skills, basic math, and concepts of history. Please check out our photo section to see our students in action!

Population(s) Served

Internships are a great option for students looking to gain experience in public archaeology. Students wishing to gain skills in archaeological programming, education, fundraising, evaluation, and outreach would benefit from interning with AITC. AITC is happy to accommodate individual interests and schedules, and specific time frames, tasks and goals are collaboratively created for mutual benefit. Internships are unpaid, but can be used to fulfill university requirements for credit. Please see the Opportunities section for more details on internships currently being offered.
