YMI: Paleontology

Carnegie Museum of Natural History
4400 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Price: $205 (Members: $185)


Piece together a prehistoric mystery as you explore the science of paleontology. Map and excavate a mock dig site, wrap your finds in plaster fossil 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 the exhibition Dinosaurs in Their Time to discover what bone you’ve found, which dinosaur it came from, and how that part of the skeleton functioned.

Last day to register is June 24, 2020.

No camp on July 3. Camp is in session on June 29-July 2.
