Aki Watanabe

You dig dinosaurs, and so does Aki Watanabe, a paleontology student at the Richard Guilder Graduate School at AMNH. He uses 3-D printing technology to reconstruct the brains of long extinct animals and determine how these critical organs evolved over time. Join us to learn how and why he became a paleontologist, what it’s like to find fossils from the deserts of Mongolia to sheer cliffs of Romania, and the geeky thrill of seeing a dinosaur brain for the first time.
