FREE school holiday activity

Palaeontology, the study of extinct animals and plants, captures our imaginations, none more so as the age of dinosaurs. Join Sarah from Little Genius Science and explore an ancient world and how we have unravelled its secrets from fossils.

Younger children will go on dino food hunt, imagine their own dinosaur, stomp and roar and dig for marine fossils from our ancient oceans.

Older children will explore the work of palaeontologists, and have the opportunity to handle fossils millions of years old. They will find out what we can learn from the fossil record and how the story of life on Earth was discovered, through fun hands on activities.

Children from both sessions take home a plaster cast of an extinct marine animal. The sessions are run by biologist and award winning science journalist Sarah Curran Ragan.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please BYO water bottle.

Registrations are required by Eventbrite.
