About the class
Paleontologists can learn more from 67-million-year-old minerals than you might think! In this class, we'll investigate our favorite dinosaur, SUE, by exploring their life and death as we learn more about the fascinating stories that fossils tell us. Come visit SUE, the world's most complete T. rex fossil, for an adventure you won't forget.
Meet your instructor, Jeff.
