School Programs

The Bodo Archaeological Site & Centre offers experiential educational programs for students of all ages. Programs take place in a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment and invite students to participate in a range of activities that will challenge and inspire them as they learn about archaeology, indigenous culture, and the natural environment. Our programs are offered on-site, but many options are also available to bring archaeology to your classroom. Our educational resources and programs are structured to meet provincial curriculum requirements in a variety of subjects and grade levels. They can also be configured to meet your specific needs.

Archaeology is an excellent teaching tool that will bring Alberta’s history alive for your students! On Site School Programs include 1/2 Day programs and overnight programs and are offered in May, June and September.
