Let’s experiment with our human senses to see how they compare with other animals, including cats, bats, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex!
About this event
This workshop will have you exploring some features of your own personal senses and comparing your human senses to that of the Tyrannosaurus Rex and other animals.
We’ll learn about senses; what are they and what they do for us and other animals. Delving into hearing, taste, smell, touch, and sight, we’ll look at fossilized T. Rex skulls and hypothesize which senses T. Rex relied on.
There will be a variety of activities that we will do in pairs (or groups), and if you want to try them out yourself come ready with:
2 or more dull pencils/pencil crayons per pair
A small, sweet food item (The host will be using beanboozled jellybeans. You can use what you have available)
A friend or family member to do experiments with!
This free 45-minute family-friendly adventure complements the many amazing experiences guests can encounter at Science World’s new feature exhibition T. rex: The Ultimate Predator, presented by RBC and White Spot Restaurants.
