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.

A Day in the Life: 3rd - 5th grade: This is your chance to try out some of the tools and techniques our museum scientists use to track and study animals, and to collect plants. We’ll orienteer with compass and GPS, explore motion-activated cameras and other non-harmful techniques of gathering animal behavior information. Design a field journal; take home knowledge and supplies to study the diverse life in your own backyard.

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.
