Science Detectives Online: Dinosaur Adaptations

New interactive offering for children 8–10 years old:  Tyrannosaurus rex was once the king of the dinosaurs, but did you know you might have its closest living relative for dinner tonight? Triceratops is famed for its three massive horns, but what exactly were they for? And why did Stegosaurus have a back full of plates? Answer these questions and more as we take a trip back in time to learn how dinosaurs adapted to live on our planet.

Each live program will come with an interactive kit that contains materials for the child  to use during the class. All activities encourage the development of skills in scientific observation and thinking.  

Participants Need to Provide:

  • Computer or tablet with a microphone and camera
  • Internet connection
  • Access to Zoom
  • A pencil
  • A notebook or paper for observations
  • Area in front of the computer to do activities on a table
