Natural History Museum Dinosaur Day is Back on May 5!

Several new and exciting activities have been added to this year’s upcoming Sierra College Natural History Museum’s DINOMITE Dinosaur Day Science Fest on Sunday, May 5, including Dinobot Building, a KaraokeChorus booth, a Lego™ Buffet, MakerSpace and ReCreate tinker labs, children’s Tae Kwon Do physics demonstrations (featuring The Studio Martial Arts and Fitness), and Free First Saturday Storytime’s Greatest Hits.

Fan favorites, such as physics and chemistry demonstrations, planetarium shows, dissections, bat box building and slime will be returning as well. There will also be live raptors, snakes, bats, lizards and insects. Kids can dig for fossils in the fossil sandbox, watch a dinosaur being transported in its crate, visit with a paleontologist and watch the preparation of fossils. Attendees will have an opportunity to tie-dye their own t-shirt* and/or walk the red carpet like a S.T.E.M. superstar! These are just some of the many activities planned for young and young-at-heart explorers.

“This year is bigger than ever, we have so many awesome activities for community members of all ages to explore and celebrate science,” commented Natural History Museum Director, Rachael Greve.

Planning to spend the day exploring and wondering what to do for lunch? Don’t worry, there will be many food options available or bring a picnic lunch and plan to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine!
