Dinosaurs drew a big audience to Eton College Natural History Museum’s Family Learning Event.

More than 75 adults and children from schools around Windsor spent time at the Museum and were able to experience a ‘dinosaur trail' and an interactive talk from visiting expert, Dr Dinosaur.

Puppets were used to tell the story of palaeontologist and fossil hunter Mary Anning, who made many important finds along the Jurassic coast in Dorset. The families also had the chance to make brightly coloured dinosaurs, to reflect how some of the prehistoric beasts may have looked.

Science Ambassadors from Royal Holloway, University of London, guided the families around the activities and helped to facilitate learning.

The day was part of a well-established and ongoing programme of family learning events run by the College Collections with the Clewer Cluster of schools, specially designed to enable children and their parents to learn together.
