Get Down With The Dinos During Prehistoric Party Weekend! Enjoy Prehistoric Experiments, DIY Fossil Necklaces & A Cretaceous Carnival on August 24-25, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM.

August is Paleontology Month at Orlando Science Center, in honor of the dinosaurs! To celebrate your favorite dino pals, we’re throwing a Prehistoric Party Weekend on August 24 and 25! We’re celebrating the megafauna with hands-on activities like DIY fossil necklaces, hands-on paleontology experiments & crafts and themed live programing.

  • Prehistoric Experiments –Strap on your mad scientist goggles in Dr. Dare’s Lab for dino-mite experiments! Use prehistoric dirt to learn more about a T-Rex, excavate chocolate chips from a cookie, and follow the clues to find out if it was volcanoes or meteorites that killed the dinosaurs.
  • Live Programming – Explore prehistoric creatures with the help of Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat, take a Dino Safari through DinoDigs, and learn about the science of fireworks in the live show KaBOOM!
  • DIY Fossil Necklaces – Step into The Hive: A Makerspace and create your own fossil necklace using wire-wrapping techniques.
  • Cretaceous Carnival – Explore different stations like excavating a triceratops skeleton, learn about the fossilization process, create and name your own dinosaur, test your Jurassic knowledge in trivia, and get a dino-mite photo op!
  • Meet Community Partners – Florida Fossil Hunters, Skeletons Museum of Osteology, Florida Geological Survey and Imagine Our Florida will have tables set up with fossil displays!
