Dinosaur Day is back!

That’s right…Dinosaur Day is back with even more to see and do than before.

Here are some of the activities scheduled:

Since we know that you framed your archaeopteryx hat from last year, we were sure to keep some of your old favorites are part of the event. You can make a new archaeopteryx hat to camouflage you from the humans while you become your true reptilian self.

The Dino Cut Outs: This incredibly popular craft from last season is back. We cut out over 1500 creatures out of wood using lasers, yes, lasers, for you to paint any way you would like!

Speaking of painting, you can finish your reptilian look by visiting our facepainting booth. Get decorated like a dinosaur or anything else that we can paint for you.

If you think that your look needs an accessory, may we suggest a dino puppet. In this area, young ones can make their dino puppets or fill out activity sheets while their parents get a chance to sit and color too.

At Dinosaur Day we aren’t just about wildlife—we like outer space too! Come and get a chance to look directly at the sun—through our special telescopes that is. We will also be offering Planetarium shows during the day.

We also celebrate physics too—we will have physics shows during the day. We will also have a room full of physics “toys” that you can use to explore this scientific field. It sounds super serious but it is really all about knocking things over and creating chaos! We will also have some crafts and activities too. Oh, and we can’t forget about the rocket wagon…we know that you all would like to see what happens when you play with fire exinguishers.

Our chemistry department is happy to help you make slime because we know that this is the one thing that all parents really want their children to take home from the event, and then take out later, at dinner, to show everyone.

You will be able to see real fossils being prepared. You can talk to people who can tell you how you can become a paleontologist yourself too!
