Art and science merge as students make and paint a fossil cast and learn about exhibit signage. What is a fossil cast? Why do museums use casts? How do you write an explanation of a fossil’s significance?
Students will discover the importance of fossil casts and how exhibit text is developed to connect with visitors. Once back in the classroom, students will develop their own museum exhibit and we’ll provide teachers with all the necessary information to help with their students’ projects.
Minimum program fees will be charged for groups of fewer than 15 students.
