Boy do we have a workshop for March!!  We are going to dive into ancient reptiles this month and focus on Dinosaurs!!  We have a special guest speaker who is a real live paleontologist, Dr. Paul Bybee! Among other degrees, Dr. Bybee has a Ph.D. in Zoology with specializations in Vertebrate Paleobiology and Evolutionary Biology from Brigham Young University, emphases in statistics and mathematics. Dr. Bybee’s interests are basically Dinosaurian in nature. The aspects of how evolution has shaped the life on earth is of prime importance to Dr. Bybee’s research. Dr. Bybee works with some of the best scientists in the field of dinosaur paleontology. Many of the projects include: work on bone histology and evolution in conjunction with Dr. John Horner, who is the main advisor to the “Jurassic Park” movies. Dr. Bybee is also a consultant to the BBC’s “Walking with Dinosaurs” and has appeared in some of the episodes.

After Dr. Bybee’s presentation we will get a chance to dig for dinosaur bones!!  This is going to be so cool you won’t want to miss it!

We hope to see you there!
