We were inspired by our new traveling exhibit, Dinosaurs Around the World for this Science Sunday. Opening this weekend, March 6, 12 animatronic dinosaurs will be taking over the Science Center. How have we been able to learn so much about these amazing creatures that lived millions of years before the first humans walked the Earth? With some science of course! Fossils of these dinosaurs have been preserved in rocks which scientists and researchers have uncovered and analyzed to learn what they looked like and how they lived.
Today, we are going to show you a fun, edible way you can explore fossils at home. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Dinosaurs Around the World opens March 6, 2021 for a limited engagement at the Connecticut Science Center and is included with General Admission. Visit CTScienceCenter.org to reserve your ticket today.
