The Link Between Dinosaurs and Birds (Summer Session 1)-

The Link Between Dinosaurs and Birds (Summer Session 1)

May 22, 2017 - July 2, 2017

Did dinosaurs really go extinct 65 million years ago? Overwhelming evidence suggests that one branch of the dinosaur family tree managed to survive, and that we see living dinosaurs every day. We call them birds. In this course, equipped with paleontologists' tools and techniques, you'll study the theropod group of dinosaurs (Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor belonged to it) and determine which are most closely related to modern birds. You'll also look at how fossils are collected and prepared, and investigate how scientists uncover the evolutionary relationships between species.
