Dinosaur enthusiasts unite for the exciting return of the Orlando Science Center’s Fifth Annual Fossil Fest this Saturday, March 19 - 11 am to 4 pm.
This Scienterrific Saturday event is a celebration of dinosaurs, paleontology and everything that's fantastic about fossils! Join the Florida Fossil Hunters as they share specimens unearthed on local expeditions.
See huge bones and teeth from the Mega Beasts that thrived here during the Ice Ages or learn about methods used to find and preserve these prehistoric wonders. Marvel along side the Central Florida Shell Club as they display shells and corals from when Florida was just a reef. The Dr. Phillips CineDome will submerge guests into prehistoric screenings of the giant screen spectacular - Sea Monsters.
Activities include dino-crafts like design your own triceratops hats, plus battle against extinction with emamosaur racing, take a leap into the Jurassic period with fossil making and create your very own unique dinosaur replication model! Hands-on geology and paleontology experiments will be taking place in Dr. Dares Lab.
