Distance LearningUp Close and Palaeo Jr.
Watch as your students are inspired by each other’s curiosity. A Science Educator will introduce students to the science of palaeontology, and then they take the lead, asking questions that relate to the curriculum you are studying. Learn more about ancient Earth, our fieldwork, and the latest discoveries in palaeontology. Animations, images, video clips, and fossils supplement the responses.
