Unpacking the Past: Penn Museum’s Innovative New Middle School Program Designed to Spark STEM Learning through Museum Engagement

unpacking the past
Curators and staff at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology know that ancient Egyptian culture and the practice of mummification fascinate visitors. Coming face-to-face with real materials from ancient Egypt and other cultures is an experience few forget.

Beginning this fall, 7th graders in the School District of Philadelphia schools, the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) and Mastery Charter Schools, their teachers—and even the students’ families—have an opportunity to delve deeper into the rich material culture and traditions of ancient Egypt and the ancient Roman Empire. Students can discover more about the ancient past, all while tapping into “Common Core” curriculum standards in language arts, math and science, through an innovative new, multi-stage program, Unpacking the Past, at the Penn Museum.
