Posted By: Traci Cimini
Students entering 6th – 8th grade are invited to become a paleontologist for a day. Discover the world of the Miocene epoch, long before humans inhabited the planet with this unique opportunity for young people to experience science by digging in and discovering answers for themselves.
This action-filled day includes learning to find and identify fossils at Cove Point beach, a behind the scenes visit to the museum’s fossil prep lab, a chance to see our 3-D printer re-creating a Megalodon tooth, and a visit to our amazing behind-the-scenes fossil collections. Campers will play Fossil Monopoly to learn just how challenging it is to become a fossil, and explore some of the problems paleontologists face in their work.
Snacks and water provided; campers bring their own lunch. Fee is $25. Pre-requisition required. Call 410-326-2042 ext. 41.
