Education is fun again at the ETSU and GSB Natural History Museum! In the Building Triceratops Patch Program, your paleontologist in-training will have the chance to explore the "Building Triceratops" exhibit and participate in engaging dinosaur activities that educate them more about Triceratops and how exhibits are created from start to finish! Children in grades Pre-K through 6th grade will have the opportunity to understand just how big a Triceratops was, how dinosaurs’ skeletons compare to their own skeletons, what it takes to put science on display and much more. Participants will also get a chance to demonstrate their creative side by constructing their very own exhibit display about the thing they know best—themselves! The program is offered on select Saturdays beginning January 15 until April 23, 2011 for preschoolers to 6th graders. The dates and times for each age group can be found on the museum website at www.grayfossilmuseum.com/calendar. As an added bonus, all Patch Program participants will also receive free admission to “Building Triceratops” featuring “Dinosaur Art of Mark Musy”. Both exhibits are sponsored locally by Dex. The Building Triceratops Patch Program can strengthen your child’s passion for dinosaurs, science, natural history and art through hands-on games and demonstrations that stimulate their mind outside of the typical school classroom.
