COSI’s Insider Science Series features prominent speakers to address science’s most cutting edge questions about natural history, transformative research, humanity’s current challenges, and beyond. Join us after-hours to hear from the experts, grab a drink or a snack at our cash bar, and as always, experience fun, hands-on science!
Featured Gallery: American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery
Speaker: Dale Gnidovec, Collections Manager and Curator of Orton Geological Museum
We will examine the tremendous diversity of theropods, the carnivorous dinosaurs. While discussing their features, Dale Gnidovec will explain why scientists believe birds are actually living dinosaurs!
Each Insider Science Series will highlight one of COSI's exhibition galleries, paired with a scientist currently conducting research or working in that field. Experience our galleries in a whole new way through a 20 - 30 minute presentation from our keynote speaker, followed by an open Q&A session in the atrium. With both our featured gallery and the cash bar open for the entire evening, there will be plenty of time for exploration, games, and tabletop science.
Tickets may be bought in advance or at the door, but as seats are limited, we recommend advanced registration!
