Virtual Jurassic Mythbusters: Exploring Paleontology (Grades 2-4)

Upcoming dates (1)

For registration assistance: 608-890-3260


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!
