On February 26–27, 2010, Marion Smeltzer, a graduate student in the Anthropology Department’s M.A. in Applied Archaeology program, presented archaeological education materials through an exhibit booth at the Middle States Regional Conference for Social Studies in Gettysburg. Smeltzer represented IUP Archaeological Services and the Indiana County Archaeological Society, which sponsored the booth.
The theme of the 107th Middle States Regional Conference was Learning from the Past and Living for the Future. Smeltzer provided teachers with materials developed by the Pennsylvania Archaeological Council and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, including examples of lesson plans, bookmarks, and brochures.
Besides her graduate studies, Smeltzer is president of the Indiana County Archaeological Society, which meets monthly at the Indiana County Historical Society.
