On Sunday, April 11th, six graduate students from the Penn State Anthropology Department, in concert with the Graduate Women in Sciences (GWIS), helped to organize a full day of archaeology and geology themed activities for 50 Pennsylvania girl scouts. They learned some basic principles of archaeological interpretation, dating and chronology, soil characterization, human skeletal analysis and the factors involved in earthquakes and tectonic activity. During lunch, four anthropology graduate students sat on a career panel in which they described their research and fielded questions from the girl scouts. By participating in this workshop, the girl scouts will obtain a "Digging Through the Past" badge."
