Junior Scientist Workshop Series: When Did Dinos Rule the World?
Start Date: 10/16/2021Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 10/16/2021End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description

We are fascinated by fossils, but what do they say about how times have changed? They tell a tale as old as time — deep time, that is!

Grades 3-5 

Be transported back in history to a time when dinosaurs walked the earth and ancient reptiles swam in the seas. Explore specimens from the Academy’s collection and learn how to read them to learn the stories of environments, evolution and extinction.

Find out how Academy scientists collect, prepare and study fossils, and practice the skills yourself under the guiding eyes of an Academy paleontologist. Take home your own fossil cast to add to your collection and become a part of our dinosaur-loving team!

Space is limited; register here by Thursday, October 14 at 5 p.m.

This workshop is part of Paleopalooza, the Academy’s annual festival of fossils. Find out what else we’re up to during this event here.

$35 child/$25 member child per workshop; additional children per family can be registered for $10 each

$5 off with Early-bird Discount (Valid through October 1)

Registering more than one child? Book by calling 215 299 1060 to receive an exclusive discount on your registration.

Please bring a small snack and a filled reusable water bottle. Feel free to bring some fossils, rocks or other natural history specimens from your own collection to show off, and we will provide everything else. At this time, masks are required in the museum for staff and guests.

Please contact Mary Bailey, youth and family programs developer, if you have any questions: mvb45@drexel.edu.
