Tiny fossils can hold giant secrets when we use the right tools to uncover them. Join the museum to work with and analyze never before touched specimens from our paleontology collection with the latest digital technology. Find out what single-celled marine organisms dating back to the Paleozoic era can tell us about mass extinctions and ocean pollution. Get hands-on with digital modeling, scanning, microscopy and 3D printing, and get up close and personal with the smallest fossils you can find!
