For more than 30 years, the NEH has supported archaeological education for K-12 students at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. The support has taken a number of forms, including challenge grants that were leveraged to raise an additional $2.355 million. This funding helped the center build an educational staff and develop a distance-learning program. Since 2002, the NEH has also provided funding for professionalization programs for K-12 educators, which bring educators from across the nation to Crow Canyon. During 2016 and 2017, Crow Canyon hosted teachers from 37 states and Washington, D.C. Additionally, In 2020, the NEH awarded the center a CARES grant to help it manage the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The knowledge I gained by being a participant in NEH was transformative… My teaching style will get a ‘face lift.’ I will absolutely include hands-on and project-based learning and will include skills that we learned in the lab. I will include primary source documents… This was a wonderful learning experience.”
