Dinosaurs (Hands-On Workshop) Other,
Science
**Dinosaurs** Examine real fossil casts and explore the differences in the teeth of herbivores and carnivores. Students will participate in a mini dinosaur excavation and make a cast of a dinosaur tooth to take home. Mad Science Enrichment Programs are fun explorations into science and technology, and they encourage informal learning through hands-on experience. All Mad Science workshops include a lot of fascinating equipment, supplies, and take-home materials which the children build themselves. The Mad Science mission is to spark the imagination and curiosity of children everywhere by providing them with fun, entertaining, and educational activities which instill a clear understanding of what science really is, and how it affects the world around them.
