Oriental Institute taking kids on dig

The Oriental Institute (OI), 1155 E. 58th St., will once again bring Chicago high school students on one of its digs in Israel.

The OI High School program will take students from Rowe-Clark High School, 3645 W. Chicago Ave., on a dig. Students learn about Israel and the Middle East, as well as archaeology. The program, according to OI, provides valuable lessons in patience and gives students confidence.
