School visits

The Bristol Dinosaur will come to your school and can deliver workshops and talks for key stages 1–4 about dinosaurs, palaeobiology, and geology.

The Bristol Dinosaur projects brings dinosaurs and science to life through free school visits for all keystages. We run stimulating and creative hands-on workshops with real fossils that students get to handle themselves.

Key themes explored include:

  • Deep time (ie geological time; millions of years)
  • Continental drift and moving landmasses
  • Geology
  • Evolution
  • Changing climates through time
  • Dinosaur reconstruction

What happens on a School visit?

Our school visits are geared towards the national curriculum's keystages:
