Virtual Workshop: Explore Dinosaurs

National Museum Cardiff

Working with one of our facilitators, you will use real fossils and bones to think like palaeontologists and solve a series of evidence-based dinosaur puzzles. With your new identification skills, you can study a Welsh dinosaur – the Dracoraptor! You will use scientific evidence to reveal how this dinosaur was found, how it lived, what it ate and what it, and its habitat, looked like.
