Palaeontologists provide much of the knowledge we have about dinosaurs and fossils. Come and try some of the things they do and see some of the objects palaeontologists have found.
Both dinosaurs and moa have a strong popular appeal for students. This programme capitalises on this to involve students in their own investigations of the Museum’s object handling collection.
The Stevenson Learning Lab provides a secure space to examine specimens, to question and to discuss these extinct species. This is a dynamic and contentious field of scientific inquiry and we include objects and activities relevant to recent findings in both the field and scholarship.This programme is assisted by LEOTC, funded by the Ministry of Education.
