Dundee’s Dino Explorers Dig In!
Published on 6 February 2015
The first batch of Dundee ‘Dino Explorers’ enjoyed a sneak preview of a brand new pre-historic experience in the city today (Friday 6 February 2015).
Dundee Science Centre has been transformed into a pre-historic playground with its new ‘Dino Explorers’ activities which will run from Monday 9 February through to Sunday 7 June 2015.
The exciting and truly hands-on playground of fun forms a massive interactive exploration of a time that existed before civilisation as we know it.
Visitors aged two and over become mini-palaeontologists in the Dino Dig workshop, digging in sand to reveal a replica dinosaur skeleton. Youngsters will find out how fossils are made and understand what an animal’s skeleton can tell us about how they lived. The final challenge will be to identify the dinosaur which has been uncovered!
Meanwhile, the Fossils and Funny Bones interactive exhibition will allow visitors to explore prehistoric life and fossils, and discover the amazing world of palaeontology through a multi-sensory exhibition experience. Using sight, sound and touch through physical play, costumes, exploration and activities, children will delight in extending their active interest in dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures that once ruled the earth.
Live, dino-themed science shows will also be held regularly throughout the day.
Admission cost for children aged two to three is £4, with one accompanying adult admitted free-of-charge. Children aged four to 15 (and students / concessions) cost £5.25, with accompanying adults admitted at £7.25. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Dundee Science Centre is open daily from 10am-5pm. For further information, please telephone 01382 228800 or visit www.dundeesciencecentre.org.uk.
