Salk Students Find Their Passion for Archaeology

February 02, 2018

Salk Students Find Their Passion for Archaeology - image001 Jonas E. Salk Middle School students in the school's new archaeology club, established in Sept. 2017, merged ancient Greek god and goddesses into modern day society through their own digital stories on Jan. 23.

The project allowed students to showcase their creativity on the computer using PowerPoint or the program, "Storyboard That." While reflecting on modern day life and technology, each student created a digital story of what gods or goddesses would do in the 21st century, including how they would utilize the popular social media platforms of today.

The after-school club is opened to Salk students of all grade levels who are interested in learning more about prehistoric people and their cultures, as well as ancient history. Under the guidance of club advisers Angela Fallo andRenee Essex,the students work on projects relating to the study of archaeology each week.

"I hope that students develop a deeper love for archaeology," said Essex. "We do a lot of creative projects which students have displayed a great interest in and we are enjoying doing fun activities with them."
