Founding Father’s and the Prehistoric Past: A Science History Lesson
Join us for a science history lesson about our Founding Fathers and their obsession with prehistoric megafauna, from mammoths to giant ground sloths. Founding Monsters is a comic book that combines sequential art with historical and scientific data created by Dr. Bernard Means and Maggie Colangelo.
Come on this fossil journey with some Ice Age fossils and 3D scanned and printed replicas.
Suggested ages 7+, $10/person. Tickets required, limited space
Dr. Bernard K. Means is the director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. He partners with museums all over the United States and one in far north India to 3-D scan and 3-D print ancient artifacts, fossils of dinosaurs and Ice Age animals, along with historic items from all major periods in American history. He will give a tour of the Virtual Curation Laboratory and show highlights of 3-D printed replicas created through his team of undergraduate students.
