Family Workshop Schedule

Workshop #1: Monsters of the Land and Sea – Compare the prehistoric ocean reptiles such as the plesiosaur and mosasaur, and the prehistoric land dinosaurs such as the mighty T. rex and the amazing Oviraptor.  Compare features, engage in experiments, and work on a cast of a Mosasaur tooth to take home and display in your private collection!

Workshop #2: Terror of the Pleistocene – Compare the giants of the ice age to animals today: Ice age Cave Bear compared to modern Black Bears, Giant Beavers vs Modern Beavers, Dire Wolves vs Modern Wolves…and more! Learn what made the ice age mammals amazing, and even work on your own model to display in your own personal “museum.”
