On Saturday, March 31, 2012, the Children’s Museum of Tucson is having a special event called Big to Little, Dino to Nano. The event is the last chance to enjoy the Dino World exhibit as well as preview its replacement, the Investigation Station exhibit. The event goes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and includes a variety of activities related to dinosaurs as well as nano science. This event is free with museum admission.
The dinosaur themed activities hosted by the Planetary Science Institute will include dino-feet relay races, dino masks, fossil prints, and meteorite demonstrations. The nano science activities hosted by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network include a giant puzzle, nano gold, and a “butterfly” demonstration.
The Big to Little, Dino to Nano event is great for kids of all ages, but especially those that are interested in dinosaurs. It is also a great chance to get a look at what the new Investigation Station exhibit will have to enjoy.
