PaleoFest 2015

In association with the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, PaleoFest 2015, March 14 and 15, focuses on the Triassic and Jurassic time periods, "The Beginning of Dinosaurs and the Origin of the Modern World."

PaleoFest opens the door and makes science a public process, and allows interested students of any age to meet with scientists to discuss their educational interests.
