We Dig Dinos!

T. rex, raptors, and Triceratops! Learn about the dinosaur superstars and their family groups during this live, 45-minute webcast with the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Located in the Alberta badlands, we’ll virtually venture into the field to see how fossils are discovered and excavated. We will learn how fossils help us explore our ancient world using specimens from our Collection. The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert. We sure dig dinos, and hope you do too!

First Steps: Dinosaur Eggs & Babies

From little feet to towering titans, we’ll explore the mysterious history of dinosaur eggs and babies. Learn about egg-citing discoveries, how different dinosaurs protected their babies, and what fossils can tell us about parental care, in this 45-minute webcast. The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert. See what’s cracking this summer at the Royal Tyrrell Museum! 

10 Scariest Specimens

Prepare to be frightened as the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology presents the Top 10 Scariest Specimens in our Collection! During this Distance Learning special presentation, you will see a crocodile skull the size of a Smart car, the largest dinosaur claw ever found, and a creature with a set of teeth bigger than T. rex! The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert. With the fossils we share, you’ll be in for a scare!
