Academic Term and Year
Did dinosaurs really become extinct 65 million years ago? Overwhelming evidence suggests that one branch of the dinosaur family tree managed to survive, and that we see living dinosaurs every day. We call them birds. Equipped with paleontologists' tools and techniques, study the theropod group of dinosaurs and determine which are most closely related to modern birds. Look at how fossils are collected and prepared, and investigate how scientists uncover the evolutionary relationships between species. Offered in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History. Accelerated online schedule. Target audience: educators 6-adult.
