Youth Museum Institute: Paleontology Field to Lab

Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Price: $250 (Members: $225)


Piece together a prehistoric mystery as you explore the science of paleontology. Map and excavate a mock dig site, wrap your finds in plaster jackets, and transport them to the laboratory classroom. Build your hands-on fossil prep skills by reconstructing discoveries and analyzing bones. Stack up your finds against the specimens in Dinosaurs in Their Timeto discover what bone you’ve found, which dinosaur it came from, and how that part of the skeleton functioned.

Campers will meet at the Portal Entry near the parking garage each morning.

Last day to register is August 16, 2017.
