An event every day that begins at 12:30 pm, repeating until January 6, 2018
Stop by this quick, hands-on activity to explore how DNA works as a blueprint for life and how your human DNA relates so closely to that of a Tyrannosaurus rex like “Sue!” Activity available 11:30am to 1:30pm.
An event every day that begins at 12:30 pm, repeating until January 11, 2018
Stop by this quick, hands-on activity to learn how the human brain compares to the T. rex brain. You’ll have the chance to compare a model of a human brain with a model of a T. rex brain and find out what scientists theorize about a T. rex’s brain capacity. Activity available 11:30am to 1:30pm.
An event every day that begins at 12:30 pm, repeating until January 15, 2018
Stop by this hands-on activity to find out about the land where dinosaurs lived. You’ll explore the landscape they inhabited and understand how recently they roamed the Earth, especially when you consider the age of our universe. Activity available 11:30am – 1:30pm
In this Exploration Station, participants will learn about how scientists and engineers use robotic rovers and other vehicles to explore distant worlds, and experience some of the challenges and teamwork required to navigate a rover across the surface of a planet millions of miles away. Players acting as “Mission Control” and a “Rover” must work together to navigate a large obstacle course. Participants can also design their own rover to overcome the particular challenges of exploring a distant planet.
Did you know the Curiosity Mars rover takes 3-D photos by using its cameras like left and right eyeballs, snapping photos from two slightly different perspectives. When NASA tints the two images, one red and one blue, and combines them, we can see 3-D views of Mars. In this activity you’ll make your own pair of 3-D glasses you can use to look at stellar scenes from Earth to Mars and beyond.
