Everything Dinosaur at the Dino-Zone
Everything Dinosaur has been invited to attend the Daresbury Sci-Tech Open Day to deliver a range of dinosaur and fossil themed educational activities. The Daresbury Laboratory Public Open Day is taking place on July 9th (a Saturday). The famous, world-renowned science park will be opening its doors to the public and this year, a wonderful “Dino-Zone” has been added to the list of family attractions. Everything Dinosaur team members have been asked to take part.
An Opportunity to Learn Lots About Science

Daresbury in the county of Cheshire, is home to one of the country’s leading science campuses where top scientists and engineers are based. As a working science facility, it is not usually open to the general public, however, on the 9th July the campus will be providing visitors with an opportunity to explore, learn and take part in some fun science activities.
Amongst the more than seventy attractions, Everything Dinosaur staff will be inviting members of the public to dig for fossils amongst the gravels of our “Jurassic beach”. Our fossil experts will be on hand to identify fossil finds and to explain about prehistoric life.

A member of the Everything Dinosaur team explained:
“Finding fossils and learning about life in the past is fun! We will have fossil bones, shark teeth, petrified wood, ammonites, belemnites, crinoids, corals, bivalves, brachiopods, all sorts of fossils and if you find something then you can take it home, the start of your very own fossil collection. Perhaps the Daresbury Sci-Tech Open Day will enthuse the next generation of palaeontologists.”
