Description

Dinosaur Detectives: Kindergarten - 2nd grade: Spend some time with our Dinosaurs, exploring them inside and out! What can you learn about dinosaurs by examining their fossils? Become a “junior paleontologist” as you go on a mock dig and unearth a real fossil. Cast your own soap from a real fossil mold.

Art and Nature: 3rd- 5th grade: The natural world has been an inspiration for artists since the time of the earliest cave paintings and carvings 40,000 years ago. We’ll study petroglyphs and paint on stone with natural earth pigments. Carve an arctic animal out of soap and create a wearable work of art.

Each workshop meets for three hours from 9:00 am - noon at the CU Museum of Natural History on the CU-Boulder Campus. Healthy snacks will be provided.
