By using simple chemical reactions, we can create a cast of an original fossil for display. In this popular program, students create a replica of a Museum fossil to take home, complete with details about the fossil's age, and where it was found. Participants also learn how molds and casts are made, and examine real fossils.
Now available in French / Maintenant disponible en français.
Silicone molds are used in the making of the casts.
Minimum program fees will be charged for groups of fewer than 15 students.
