Dinosaur Day/Science Fest is back!

So many things to do! Here's a sampling of typical activities:

  • Watch paleontologists prepare real fossils
  • Dig in our Dino Pit and try to uncover some yourself
  • See exploding watermelons, freezing flowers, and other experiments with liquid nitrogen
  • Make slime
  • Build a dinobot at the robotics booth
  • Design with our 14,000 Legos©
  • Make a hat or a puppet
  • Get your face painted
  • Tie-dye a shirt (extra fee for materials)
  • Tinker at our MakerSpace
  • Make a bat house (while supplies last)
  • Visit the Dino Store - cool science things, fossilized dino droppings, beautiful minerals and more!
  • See a Planetarium show (the shows are first-come, first-seated; ages 8 and up, please)

There will be 10 food and treat vendors so you won't go hungry!

Here's a flyer of the activities, times and map.
