Future Young Paleontologists get hands on with our Dinosaur Fossils…

On Monday 11th May 8 wonderful children and their teacher Laura Simpson from St John’s Primary School in Leigh came to visit and get hands on with some of our oldest artefacts.

The fabulous group, some of whom had never been to the museum before, were very excited and had a particular interest in all things dinosaur!!! This dedicated young group of explorers had even managed to track down a dinosaur in their school grounds and had written to me to tell me all about it. I just had to meet them!

The group knew so much about fossils and what skills you need to be a good paleontologist that I could definitely see some future scientists in the making in this group.

Here’s what the group got up to on their day being Dinosaur Detectives.

We hope to see you all again soon at the Manchester Museum and keep up all the really good paleontological work.
