Welcome

The Community Historical Archaeology Project with Schools (CHAPS) was established in 2009 to:

  • Create archaeologically and historically literate citizens who are aware of their local cultural and natural history and of its importance to the future of the Rio Grande Valley.
  • Help local school districts develop interdisciplinary K-12 curriculum to prepare students for future enrollment in the STEM subjects.
  • Teach students the importance of stewardship to include site preservation, ethics and laws that affect our non-renewable local resources.
