Science Detectives: Dinosaurs Roar!


Join NCMNS on the second Wednesday of the month (October, November, and December) for classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students. These 60-minute in-person classes allow us to delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

Become a paleontologist and embark on a discovery of dinosaurs and the world around them. What makes a dinosaur? How big were they? What did they eat? We’ll uncover these answers and more as we meet animal’s whose ancestry can be traced back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Participants must be 5-7 years old for this program. This is a drop-off class. Parents will not be allowed to attend the class with their child but do need to remain in the Museum.
