May 21 – September 5
60 minutes – $6.00/student
Book a visit to this DINO-MITE temporary exhibit on its own, with another program or as part of our $15 day-long Ultimate Field Trip package which includes Ultimate Dinosaurs, a Planetarium show and a visit to the Museum Galleries.
Ultimate Dinosaurs/Formidables dinsaures introduces your students to new and unique dinosaurs from around the world. The bilingual exhibition combines rarely-seen specimens with interactive stations to highlight scientific study of fossils and includes examples of augmented reality technology that transforms full-scale dinosaur skeletons into flesh-covered moving critters right before your eyes! Grade 7 classes will be particularly interested in the section which examines the break-up of supercontinent Pangaea into the continents that we know today and how plate tectonics and the way changing continents affected the evolution of dinosaurs during the Mesozoic Era.
Groups will be greeted by an exhibit host who will provide them with an activity guide taking them to six different interactive stations where they can collect stamps on their quest to become a certified Junior Paleontologist.
Teachers interested in going more in-depth can prepare their students with resources from our TEACHERS GUIDE which contains pre-visit, in-gallery and post-visit activities.
