Science Detectives: Fossil Investigations

  • Wednesday, November 10, 2021
  • 10:30am - 12:00pm

Join us on the second Wednesday of the month (October, November, and December) for classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students. These 90-minute classes allow us to delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

From megalodons to ammonites, students will investigate a variety of fossils, unraveling what they are, where they came from, and what they can tell us. Students will meet living relatives of animals whose ancestors can be traced back in the fossil record. Fossil matrix will go home with participants for further home study.

Participants must be 8-10 years old for this program.

Please read our Safety Policy before registering.


Registration ends 24-hours prior to program start time.
