Jurassic Park brought dinosaurs back to life by extracting DNA from a mosquito trapped in amber, but is this really possible? You will spend part of the afternoon with paleontologist Annie Quinney, searching for fossils in amber provided by the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. Then, work with an artist, Jennifer Park, to make your own Jurassic Park movie prop. Bring your own small memento (a child’s tooth or a loved one’s hair?) to fossilize for the next 150 million years!
Attendees must wear closed toed shoes and pants/leg coverings. You will be given lab coats, goggles, and gloves upon arrival at the lab.
