Dinosaur Encounter

UW Space Place (2300 S. Park)
04/10/2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

At UW Space Place, 2300 S. Park Street.

Kids love dinosaurs! This highly visual and very entertaining presentation will captivate kids of all ages as Janet Riehecky, award-winning children's book author, shows her extensive collection of fossils and museum-quality replicas of real dinosaur bones - including a 5' 7" Apatosaurus femur and an entire foot of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Follow the clues to learn the latest theories about dinosaurs: how big they grew, what they ate, how they lived together, and why they fought. Examine a tyrannosaur's tooth, an iguanodon's thumb, or a velociraptor's claw. Find out why some dinosaurs ate rocks and which dinosaurs made good mothers.

This program is done in partnership with the UW Odyssey Project.
