If you can find a fossil in perhaps the world’s largest sandbox, it’s yours for the painting — and taking home! Join the team of palaeontologists, educators, and technicians from the famous Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in the Beakerhead sandbox for human ingenuity.
Meet a palaeontologist, see how fossils are prepared or just play in the sand. Then, take a picture of your sandy self with a raptor. Rooooar! Wait a second — scientists now think that dinosaurs made cooing sounds, like birds. Yes, really!
