Everick Foundation

Everick Foundation is a charitable endeavour that provides opportunities for outreach and education topics in archaeology.

Using archaeology as a pedagogical tool encourages critical thinking and challenges misconceptions. We believe there is a place for Australian Archaeology in the curriculum that can inspire students to contemplate the continuum of time and space through the material analysis of artefacts. We provide a range of curriculum aligned, archaeology themed activities suitable for both primary and secondary students.

We also provide teachers with the chance to gain practical experience in teaching archaeology with an annual field school in southeast Queensland, in addition to various PD sessions.
