Bring the excitement of dinosaurs to your classroom! Join us at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh where we will embark on a prehistoric adventure. Learn how to capture young children’s excitement about the latest dinosaur discoveries to spark a love of science learning. This year’s workshop will focus on Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus rex, which are not only some of the most popular dinosaurs but the centerpieces of the Museum’s newest dinosaur acquisition – the Dueling Dinosaurs.

At the end of the workshop, eligible teachers will receive one hundred dollars’ worth of science, math and literacy materials, a dinosaur tote bag, and an activity-filled flash drive. Dinner will be served at 6pm!
