Discover how Triceratops survived during the Cretaceous.

How did Triceratops survive? Students will discover the secrets of the Triceratops’ survival when they visit the most complete and finely preserved Triceratops ever found, in Fate of the Dinosaurs exhibition.

Immersive Cretaceous experiences, touchable 3D printed Triceratops body parts and real fossil galleries provide an extraordinarily rich learning science experience for all students.

Through participating in these programs students will:

  • Be able to make authentic scientific observations on a real Triceratops;
  • Identify external features of Triceratops that helped it survive;
  • Sort information collected in the galleries to report back to their community.

As part of this program, school groups will be given a short introduction plus a student booklet, connected to curriculum, which can be used in the galleries or back at school.

Bookings for Triceratops: Fate of the Dinosaurs must be made at least three weeks prior to visiting.
