Educator-Led ProgramsDinomechanics

Working in groups, students will explore the mechanics of how dinosaurs moved by comparing them to modern animals. They will use their mathematical skills and take measurements of dinosaur skeletons in Dinosaur Hall. A discussion afterwards will allow them to share their findings with their classmates.
