DSC Expands its Walk Like a Dino Field Trip Workshop
The Da Vinci Science Center has expanded its Walk Like a Dinosaur school field trip workshop as the Center prepares to host the feature exhibition Be the Dinosaur: Life in the Cretaceous.
The expanded workshop for grades Pre-K-2 lets students explore paleontology with loads of hands-on fun. Students will learn first-hand how much can be discovered about dinosaurs from their fossils. Students will answer questions such as: Did dinosaurs have scales of feathers? Did they lay eggs? What did they eat? Are all fossils from dinosaurs? The workshop is suitable for students from preschool through second grade and directly addresses key practices and concepts of the Next Generation Science Standards.
Da Vinci Science Center school field trips inspire minds while engaging students in standards-based content in a way that groups enjoy thoroughly. Staff members and volunteers bring science to life as they guide students around the exhibit floor, and the Center offers a wide variety of hands-on workshops such as Walk Like a Dinosaur that reinforce standards.
The Be the Dinosaur exhibition opens on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014, at the Da Vinci Science Center and is sponsored in part by ATAS International, Inc. This state-of-the-art exhibit experience features video game technologies that let visitors control their own digital dinosaurs and explore what their world was really like. Visitors also can observe artificially-intelligent dinosaurs inside a stunningly accurate re-creation of the Earth during the Cretaceous period.
