SUBMERGED: Underwater Archaeology in South Carolina

The Maritime Research Division has received funding to visit 8th grade classrooms throughout the state of South Carolina for the Spring of 2019 and share with students the watery world of underwater archaeology in the Palmetto state. These informative sessions, designed for single classroom-size, are comprised of a short presentation, video clips and hands-on activities to engage students in the understanding and appreciation of submerged archaeological resources. Each session lasts 40-60 minutes, depending on teacher’s classroom time availability. Instructors can accommodate 5 sessions per day and larger schools can be accommodated over a two-day period.Schools wishing to participate need to fill out the application found below and submit to Project Director, Ryan Bradley via email at no later than 30 November 2018. Any questions about the program may also be directed to Mr. Bradley. This program is supported by a Major Grant provided by the South Carolina Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities and is offered at no cost to the school district.

SC Humanities makes several categories of grants available to statewide nonprofit organizations, including major grants, mini and planning grants, fast-track literary grants, and council program grants. The grants program has always been the foundation of the Council’s public support of the humanities, and they have funded a variety of projects. The Council awarded its first grant in the spring of 1973 and recently has awarded approximately $200,000 a year in grant monies.
