Bring your dino toy day

What dinosaurs do you have at home?

Bring along a toy dinosaur and we'll have a look at what sorts are found in the shops. Are they realistic? When did they live? What groups do they belong to? Can we fit them into the scientific view of the dinosaurs? Bring your favourite, the strangest one and the one you'd most like as a pet.

How do we know what we know about dinosaurs?

Using clues from the present to uncover the past, we will look at how our understanding of dinosaurs has changed. How can clues from skeletons rebuild a whole animal? We have more in common with them than we think.

Come and meet our expert Tom Hartman from the University's School of Life Sciences and bring your toy with you!
