Virtual Jurassic Mythbusters: Exploring Paleontology (Winter)


Upcoming dates (0)

Not scheduled at this time. Join the mailing list.


It's true, we all love learning about dinosaurs, but why are we still so curious? One of the reasons may be that what we *think* we know about dinosaurs is always changing as new discoveries are unearthed. This course will tackle the age old question of "What happened to the dinosaurs?" and take that idea to the next level by exploring common perceptions (and misperceptions!) surrounding dinosaurs. If you are a dino expert or just curious to learn more, get ready to "dig in" and test your knowledge in this class!
