Anthropologist’s Apprentice

Saturday, June 1, 2019
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Every fossil has a story, and NYU anthropologist Shara Bailey knows how to tell it. Unearth the history behind fossils recently discovered in South Africa using clues to determine their age and identity. Amateur anthropologists will even have the opportunity to step up to a state-of-the-art scanning device, create a 3D model of the bones, and then stitch them together to make a complete model.

A student-only program for kids currently enrolled in grades 5-8. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this event.

Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
