Section Description

Dinosaurs and placoderms and trilobites – oh my! Historical sciences such as paleontology, geology, and astrophysics use a much different scientific toolbox than the more experimental sciences. Come learn how scientists use clues found buried in the earth such as the fossil record, the movement of the continents, and chemical composition of rocks and ice, as well as clues found buried in the DNA of living organisms to piece together a picture of ancient ecosystems and the history of living species.
