Science Detectives: Fossils – Windows into the Past

  • Wednesday, October 19, 2022
  • 10:15am - 11:15am

Join us for classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students. These 60-minute classes allow us to delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

Give your students a unique opportunity to study fossil specimens from North Carolina and elsewhere. Students examine fossils to learn how they form and how fossils tell us about the past. Students also explore how we know the age of fossils and how a geologic map can help with fossil dating and identification.

Participants must be 11 years of age or older for this program.


Registration ends 48 hours prior to program start time.
