Get a taste of what it’s like to be an archaeologist, biologist or astromathemetician while exploring the world of the ancient Maya. An archeological team has mysteriously disappeared from a dig site in Palenque, Mexico. They had been investigating a long-standing rumor that a priceless jade medallion is buried in the temple there. However, something horrifying has scared them off. Luckily, in their haste to escape, they managed to leave behind a video with clues and a warning to all who come after. The original team has left behind valuable information in the field stations that they constructed. Student Archeologists must uncover the mystery of the dig site and find the priceless treasure. Visitors will have fun learning about science, language and history with hands-on immersive activities!
