Art and science come together as students cast and paint a complete skeleton of a small carnivorous dinosaur. Discover how the Museum creates replicas of fossils, and how those bones are arranged in the vertebrate body plan. Students create and paint their own cast, and as a group, assemble the bones into a full skeleton that can be taken back to their school where it can be mounted for display!
