Dino-Mite Discoveries

For students entering 3rd - 5th grade

Have you ever wondered what it is like to study dinosaurs and fossils like a real paleontologist? Did certain dinosaurs really have feathers? Just how much can a fossil tell us about the earth 200 million years ago? In this class, we will explore what scientists have discovered about how dinosaurs lived and how they use fossils to learn more about them. We will meet distant dinosaur relatives and make our own fossil replicas to take home.

Limited to 16 students per session.
