Program image

Science and art collide to bring the past to life! Your students will take a journey of discovery and creation as they use real fossil evidence to sculpt their very own dinosaurs. This fun class blends live virtual instruction from a Museum educator with mixed digital media, kinesthetic activities, and two-way interactivity. Students piece together clues that teach them about dinosaurs and show them how scientists and artists work together to understand the deep past. Sculpt-a-saurus introduces learners to scientific methodology as well as paleontology, fossilization, erosion, adaptation, and climate.
