On Friday, October 21st, 2011, the ArchaeoBus spent the day at the Georgia Council for the Social Studies conference in Athens. GCSS Conference Coordinator Diane Sloan notes that 510 attended the conference, and that “the conference was a great success due in no small part to your participation.”

Teachers and educators could tour the ArchaeoBus and examine hands-on displays inside the Classic Center. The SGA offers a door prize that is awarded in the afternoon.

The ArchaeoBus has already been invited to attend the 2012 conference, even though the date has not yet been selected!
