Jurassic Science- Paleontology & Dinosaurs

 

Dinosaurs are the champions of endurance and persistence.  They roamed the earth unchallenged for 165 million years. We, in comparison, have been around for only 315,000 years. We have much to learn from dinosaurs’ successful survival systems.  Since their history is written in stone and is buried beneath our feet, we will literally dig up their stories from our own dino scene investigation sight.  We will use scientific methods to discover facts about them and use critical thinking to analyze them.  Our week will be filled with fun hands-on activities that will introduce you to some of the most fascinating dinosaurs of the past and even the present!

Led byDanny Anduza

Like many kids, Danny loved dinosaurs when he was a child.  His parents thought it was cute but there were convinced that he would either become a pastor or work for an oil company as they did.  But soon it became apparent that Danny’s childhood spirit of wonder and curiosity didn’t cease and dinosaurs became his life-long passion.  Today Danny is a junior research associate at the University of California Museum of Paleontology in Berkeley. He also has a YouTube channel about dinosaurs called Paleontologizing.

Danny was a field paleontologist at the Museum of the Rockies, working with the famed Jack Horner.  He was also a field paleontologist at Fowler Paleontology & Geology, MT, and at the Badlands Dinosaur Museum in North Dakota.
