    As an explorer, you've always dreamed of adventuring through Egypt. It's where your great-grandfather, Howard Carter, discovered the remains of the ancient pharaoh Tutankhamen. But he had a secret--something he never told anyone other than you. He believed there was another tomb connected to the first. A hidden tomb. A Lost Mummy. Explorers in grade 6 & up are invited to join us for this in-person event on Friday, February 25th at 6:00 pm. This program involves a series of puzzles to solve with the aid of Howard Carter's diary. If you are able to solve all the puzzles and escape the tomb, you can win a prize!

    Step into a time when papyrus grew along the Nile River and pyramids dotted the horizon in Ancient Egypt with this illustrated and engaging presentation. Our program focuses on the boy king, Pharaoh Tut-Ankh-Amun. Why is he so famous and do the curses really exist? We take a virtual tour of his tomb, and learn how it was discovered 100 years ago!

She holds double bachelor’s degrees in Egyptology & Classical Archeology from the University of Michigan, and a Master’s degree from Harvard University in Art & Museum Education.
