Help the Burke Museum sort and classify fossils! How do scientists find and study fossils? Delve into the world of paleontology by learning about expeditions and how fossils are used to tell us about the living things of the past. Support research as a citizen scientist and examine sediment to find microfossils that Burke scientists will use in their research. Imagine the amazing life that once inhabited our planet by interacting with real scientific specimens and tools that include cast replicas of dinosaur fossils. For all ages.
