Archeologist Career Exploration Session

Time: 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Archaeologists work at locating and identifying archaeological sites, palaeontological (dinosaur bones, other fossils), old and abandoned buildings and other remnants of the past. This career involves planning, research, analysis, archaeological excavation and laboratory analysis to help preserve, protect and understand ancient sites and remains. The most rewarding part of being an archaeologist is finding artifacts that have not been seen in hundreds or thousands of years, and preserving them for the future. Join Tyrel to find out more about an in-demand career of exploration and discovery.

Each student needs to register in advance in order to receive a link to the virtual events. The deadline to register is 12:00 pm the morning of the event. Career Exploration Sessions are run as a Meeting on Microsoft Teams. Further instructions along with the link will be sent directly to the student(s).

The sessions will be recorded and posted to our website within 5 days of the event. Any student who was unable to attend the live session can be directed here: (https://www.careersteps.ca/exploration-sessions/). Obviously, the advantage of attending in person is that students can ask questions of the host during the live event.
