Dinosaurs: Big, Bad, Bold, and Back
June 2, 2012 - January 6, 2013
Take a journey back to prehistory when giant animals roamed the
earth, swam in the seas and soared in the sky. Meet a T. rex up
close, marvel at the long-necked Apatosaurus and watch the skies
for the flying Pteranodon. But beware, these creatures look, move
and sound like the real thing. This exhibit includes over 20
robotic dinosaurs, a rubbing station, and a fossil dig site.
Kokoro, the company that created these robotic dinosaurs, consults with distinguished paleontologists on all aspects of the creatures' attributes and functioning during development. Each creature is individually handcrafted and computer-programmed.

"Dinosaurs of the South (and other prehistoric giants)"
August 7, 2012 from 12noon - 1pm
SPEAKER : Judy Cutchins, natural science author/educator, Fernbank Science Center and Fernbank Museum, (Atlanta)
Finding out about dinosaur life in the southern states is challenging. Unlike the Western U.S., complete skeletons in the South are rare. But paleontologists have uncovered enough fossil evidence to know that a variety of dinosaurs, giant sea creatures and land reptiles once inhabited what is now the southeastern U.S. Join us to learn just what amazing prehistoric giants lived in or near Mississippi and what the South was like 80 million years ago.
