Graveyard of Atlantic Museum Offers Shipwreck Archeology
Students in grades eight and higher are eligible
For the last three years, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum has offered
students an opportunity to apply what they've learned in math, science,
social studies, English and history to real world problems. Designed for
students in grades eight and above, the 2006 Shipwreck Archeological Workshop
will give ten participants a glimpse of what it's like to be an archeologist.
The program, sponsored by the Charles Finch Gaddy Foundation, will introduce
students to archeological concepts and methods and then invite them to
Hatteras Island during the week of June 18-24, 2006 to investigate an
actual shipwreck site near the museum. Tuition, which includes room and
board for the week, is $200. Scholarships are available for students who
need assistance. You may download a copy of the application (MS Word format)

The SAW program was created by Wendy M. Coble, MA, archeologist and the
late Sheri D. Coble, MA, educator. Wendy has an MA in Maritime History
and Underwater Archeology from East Carolina University and currently
works for the U.S. Naval Historical Center. She will be assisted during
the workshop by Beverly Henson, a teacher of Science and Social Studies
at Cape Hatteras Elementary School.
