- Fossil Hunt: Kids can search for—and keep—real fossils.
- Paleontology Lectures: Listen to famous paleontologists.
- Meet Real Scientists: Talk with scientists from the Academy's Paleontology Department and learn about their work.
- Academy Fossils: Check out some fossils from our scientific collections.
