Dinosaurs and MOR

Apr 15

This event is designed for both adults and families with children. It will feature various activities to celebrate the science of paleontology, including a keynote talk from John “Jack” Horner, Presidential Fellow at Chapman University, former Curator of Paleontology at MOR, and scientific advisor to the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World Series.
Adults (and perhaps some families) will enjoy 10 paleontology presentations from world-renowned paleontologists. There will be several opportunities to bid on special paleontology-themed collectibles during the paleontology presentations, from fossil casts to signed books, posters, and more.
Families will enjoy paleo-passport activity stations throughout the Siebel Dinosaur Complex, the Dinosaur Prophesy show in the Taylor Planetarium, and several dino-tastic workshops led by MOR educators.
About Dinosaur Prophesy: Solve four cold cases from the Age of Dinosaurs! Long before the dinosaurs' massive extinction 66 million years ago, many individual species disappeared. Visit dinosaur graveyards, study their bones, and reconstruct how these creatures lived and died to solve four famous cold cases from the age of the dinosaurs. Suitable for general audiences, grades 2 8.
Workshops include Paleoart Drawing.
