LIMITED TIME!!DINORSAURS AT DUSK: THE ORIGINS OF FLIGHT
Take to the skies and discover the origins of flight. Dinosaurs at Dusk is a learning adventure of a father and his teenage daughter Lucy who share a fascination for all things that fly. You'll travel back in time to meet the pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern day birds: the feathered dinosaurs. Lucy and her father will navigate from continent to continent to look for clues for the origins of flight until time runs out and they experience first-hand the cataclysmic last day of the dinosaurs. Science content includes topics such as continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the convergent development of flight among species.
Duration: 41 minutes
