Science Extension Trip to the Anthropology Department at the University of Auckland

The Science Extension group were lucky enough to be invited into the Anthropology Department at the University of Auckland on Friday 6 December. They got to experience both basic biological anthropology as well as archaeology via a number of activities involving replica casts of our fossil ancestors. Examining ageing and sexing of human bones, as well as looking at the structural differences between bipeds and quadrupeds, the students enjoyed these hands-on practical activities. Following this, they played an educational board game developed by the department to teach colonisation of the Pacific.

Remuera Intermediate would like to thank the Anthropology Department for hosting this group of fine young scientists!
