The University of West Alabama’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics invites middle school students in and around Sumter County to the next in its series of Science Saturdays on July 14 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus.
Dr. Ashley Dumas, a UWA professor and assistant director of the Black Belt Museum, will present “Dig Archaeology,” an activity for middle school students. Participants will learn how archaeologists study the past and will have a chance to work with artifacts in the Black Belt Museum Laboratory.
Science Saturdays are designed to give young students early exposure to the world of science. The sessions create excitement and enthusiasm that students need not only to learn the basics of science, but also gain the tools to further their studies in the field.
