Kids U: Collapse - The Fall of Complex Civilizations

What do the Mayans of South America, Vikings of Greenland, and the people of Easter Island have in common? They all had intricate, complex societies that collapsed and disappeared.

In this Kids U camp we’ll explore critical and scholarly evaluations of the factors that contribute to the fall of civilizations and discuss competing explanations for collapse, focusing primarily on the arguments between environmental factors and human agents.

A required textbook is included in the camp fee.

The camp is available to youths in grades 9-12, rising.

Kids U camps are presented by UT Conferences & Non-Credit Programs.
