IN-Person Class

Dino Discovery


Be a Paleontologist!

Learn about dinosaurs, fossils, and participate in your own dino excavation dig!

Q: What do you call a sleeping dinosaur? A: A dino-snore!
Messy class! Dress appropriately.



Dinos Are you a mini Paleontologist? Study the past through fossils! Touch real fossils and create model fossils of your own! Learn about types of dinosaurs, how they lived, and what might have happened to them. You’ll be able to go on an ancient safari and try to spot a totally real (not at all a person in a costume!) T-Rex somewhere on campus. Then you can study it and record your observations in your field journal. We will even conduct our own excavation with a dino dig!

It’s really hard to NOT love this class. Any nerd that is interested in dinosaurs or animals will love this class. There is so much to learn and do for a young paleontologist!

Our Little Nerd classes for grades 1-3, are engaging and exciting and vary greatly in content and structure, but in some form there is always direct instruction from the teacher, guided practice, and independent or small group work with help and support from peers and staff. We usually begin the day with a team building activity and move into our first lesson. Next is a hands-on activity or project. Halfway through the class, kids will take a brief recess and snack break. A second lesson follows break and the kids will do another project/activity or continue one they were working on. Bottom line: It’s hands-on, interactive, fun learning.

Class is 3hrs each day, so bring a snack for break time. Also, bring your own refillable water bottle. Don’t have one? Add our Nerding water bottle to your order and pick up on first day of class!


Your nerd will build and discover like these nerds have.
