Dispatches from a Dinosaur Dig





Saturday, August 29th


 

NJ State Museum Paleontologist Jason Schein will share discoveries from his recent paleo-dig in a family-friendly presentation entitled "Dispatches from a Dinosaur Dig." Former Field Station Expedition Manager Brooke Rowzee will give a firsthand account of her experience on the adventure, as well. 

The kid-oriented talk will take science out of the textbooks and bring it to life again, the perfect antidote for summer "brain drain."

 "Anyone who thinks science isn't exciting hasn't met Jason Schein," says Guy Gsell, Executive Producer at Field Station: Dinosaurs. "He is a real-life Indiana Jones with an amazing story to share."
