Join a real-life fossil hunter and Palaeontologist to explore the world of dinosaurs at London’s Natural History Museum! Led by an expert on Palaeontology - Dr. Aaron Hunter - this interactive seminar will look at the world of the dinosaurs. What really is a dinosaur? Ever wondered how scientists search for dinosaurs across the world? How do scientists bring these ancient animals to life? Do dinosaurs still live today? How did these dinosaurs evolve?

This Conversation will try to answer all your questions as we discover the world of dinosaurs at London’s Natural History Museum. We will follow 19th Century scientists as they dig up these terrible lizards from the distant past in England! We will then journey to the USA, Canada, and Mongolia to explore how the most famous dinosaurs: Stegosaurus, Diplodocus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex were discovered in the “Bone Wars”; and discover what scientists think about these amazing ancient animals today. Along the way will be doing Dinosaur Origami to learn about the different types of dinosaurs that existed for millions of years. Finally, we will find out what actually killed (most of) the Dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Materials Needed:

  • Pencils and coloring pencils
  • Paper

    FAQs

    My child is older/younger than the suggested age grouping. May they join? The age range we have indicated is a suggestion based on the content of the conversation and teaching approach. Ultimately the decision to book a younger or older child is at your discretion. We generally design our Kids Hour conversations for the following age groupings: 7-9 and 10-12.

    Am I required to accompany my child? Your child is welcome and encouraged to attend the conversation independently. We just ask that you assist with the start-up in case your child has difficulty entering the Zoom room, changing their display name, and finding the mute and/or raise hand feature.

    What if my child has a question during the conversation? The expert may choose to mute all participants while she is speaking. On our adult conversations, participants use Zoom’s chat function to ask questions. On our Kids Hour conversations, we use the raise hand feature.

    Does my child need to come with any materials? We will indicate in the description of the conversation if there are materials that need to be pre-prepared.

    Is your fee per learner or per family? Our fee is per learner.
