"The Latest and Greatest: The Science Behind Dinosaurs"

What explains our fascination with dinosaurs? Could it be their size? Or is it our endless curiosity with how these "terrible lizards" (a rough translation of the word "dinosaurs," coined by Sir Richard Owen in 1842) ultimately met their demise?

Friday, Oct. 5th, USU's "Indiana Jones of Bones" takes us on an exciting journey to unravel some of the mysteries of these ancient creatures. Ken Carpenter, curator of paleontology and director of the USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum speaks at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium (Room 130) of the Eccles Science Learning Center.

The event is free and open to all ages.

Following Dr. Carpenter's talk, Science Unwrapped attendees are invited to enjoy free refreshments and a variety of hands-on learning activities for all ages.

Join us for an exciting evening of prehistoric fun!
