Examine real fossils, hold a replica dinosaur brain, and assemble a life-sized “raptor” skeleton. Students will learn about adaptations and simple machines through a series of fun activities, culminating with them working in groups to build a mechanical “raptor” leg, which they will bring to life in a dinosaur-inspired relay race.
Minimum program fees will be charged for groups of fewer than 15 students.
