Children will be uncovering the secrets of the past at a free event at the Loft Markets, Rocks Centre, in The Rocks from July 8th to July 20th, 11am to 4pm daily.

The event is being staged by Children's Discovery Limited, a not-for-profit organisation promoting interactive learning .

"Kids Dig @ The Rocks" is for children from 5 to 12 years and engages them in a lifelike archaeology experience as they unearth old relics and historical artefacts from our rich history.

Children participate in a lifelike scenario, where important relics have been discovered at The Rocks during a building project. The project has been halted to enable our junior archaeologists to enter the site and investigate, making their own discoveries and unearthing articles dating back over 200 years of European settlement.

Children will be kitted out with specialist apparel and archaeologists tools to help unearth and identify artefacts. Each participant is then allocated a section of the dig for exploration.

Kids Dig @ The Rocks is proudly sponsored by Energetics Pty Ltd, the leading company in Australia that provides energy management solutions for Australia's major companies and government organisations.

Matt Reardon, Energetics CEO said that Kid's Dig @ The Rocks offered an innovative and educational experience for the children of Sydney.

"As an innovator in our field, we're delighted to support an event which stimulates the imagination of children."

Children's Discovery plans to develop a new learning and discovery centre for children in Sydney. Its purpose is to enhance the fertile sense of wonder which all children possess, by direct experiences with real objects and technologies.

Children's Discovery Director, Dr Doreen Clark AM, said " Children's Discovery is delighted to have an opportunity to demonstrate the Adventure Gallery which will be a feature of the major children's facility in its final form. Our thanks to Energetics for their support and to Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority for the exciting venue."
