Dinosaurs at Dusk

About Dinosaurs at Dusk

Recommend for ages 8+, grades 4-7
Running Time: 45 minutes

Travel back in time to meet the pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs.

Lucy and her father navigate from continent to continent, looking for clues about the origins of flight. When time runs out they experience first-hand the cataclysmic “last day” of the dinosaurs.

Dive into topics such as continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the convergent development of flight among species!

(Available in Dutch, French, German & Spanish)

Available for birthday parties.
