All Ready for Daresbury Open Day

Everything Dinosaur team members are all ready for the Daresbury Open Day taking place tomorrow (Saturday 9th July).  After working with the Science and Technology Facilities Council earlier in the week, supporting the outreach work with schools at the Daresbury Laboratory site (Warrington, Cheshire), our attention has turned to final preparations for the public open day.  Everything Dinosaur will be working in the “Dino Zone” encouraging visitors to dig for fossils and if you find a fossil you can keep it!

If you can’t make it, then do not worry, visit the Everything Dinosaur website instead: Everything Dinosaur.

Staff from Manchester Museum will be on hand to bring visitors up to date with amazing new fossil research and they have brought some super casts and fossil replicas for people to see, including a replica of the horn from a huge Triceratops (T. horridus we think).  There will be an ichthyosaur cast to examine, plus we promise to bring some coprolites for brave people to hold and there might even be a few fossils of Woolly Mammoth on  hand, we promise to bring some fossil teeth.

For models and replicas of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals: Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Animal Figures.

It should be a fun filled and action packed day tomorrow, we might even spot a Tyrannosaurus rex on walkabout.  Dinosaur fans of all ages will be roaring with excitement.
