    ​Join in on the fun and test your technology skills at the S'edav Va'aki Museum's 22nd Annual Ancient Technology Day on March 9th from 9:00AM to 3:00PM.

    Witness demonstrators present technologies inspired by the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People who thrived in a desert environment. Learn about skills such as flint knapping (making arrowheads), raw hide drum making, etching shell jewelry, basketry production, and more! Experts in historic technologies will demonstrate skills from early European settlers such as lace making and adobe brick making! Learn fun facts about the desert environment and try your shot at throwing a spear with an atlatl or using a replica bow to launch an arrow. 

    Ancient Technology Day: Prehistoric & Historic, an official Arizona SciTech Festival event, highlights technologies to provide our guests with a more complete understanding of Arizona's history and its environment. In addition to hands-on demonstrations, families can enjoy free craft activities and artifact show-and-tell stations. Enjoy an experience that is fun for the whole family!

    All Ancient Technology Day activities and Museum admission are FREE for the day!
