Junior Paleontology Programs

The world of dinosaurs and prehistoric life can spark an interest in young and old alike but it is particularly strong among children. For some children, this interest slowly wanes over time but for others it only grows and broadens to include the many forms and stories of life on our earth. These are the children who are always bringing home rocks and bones and sea shells. They can tell you the name of the earth’s biggest snake and the deadliest spider and how long you’d live if you were bitten by either!  For these children, the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum offers two unique “Junior Paleontology Programs.” Both these hands-on programs offer children ages 5-13 an opportunity to learn more about dinosaurs, fossils and paleontology.
