Outreach for Public Schools

We invite elementary, middle and high school teachers and their students to visit us for a hands-on introduction to a variety of fascinating anthropological topics.

What does it mean to be human? Who are our closest relatives? Why do we walk on two legs?

What was the world like before history? Where do we come from? How are we different? The same?

The UC Davis Anthropology Museum Education Outreach Program offers presentations on a variety of popular topics – or on subject matter that we can tailor to your curriculum. We welcome individuals and groups of students by appointment weekdays. And if your class has more than 50 students, we may be able to bring selected collections to your school.
