Dinosaur Terrariums $15 per student

Students will step into the role of a paleontologist as they explore fossils and dinosaur artwork in the special exhibition Seeing Truth: Art, Science, Museums and Making Knowledge. Afterwards, students will sculpt dinosaurs out of clay and construct their own terrarium habitat for their creatures.
