They move. They roar. They even wag their tails. These are just some of the things you’ll see the robotic dinosaurs do at Bay County Junior Museum’s dinosaur exhibit.
The museum is known for providing alternative educational opportunities to children across the Northwest Florida. And the past weekend the museum welcomed it s newest exhibit.
Science and History can sometimes be difficult subjects to grasp. But at the Junior Museum they’ve found a way to make it fun.
Bay County exhibit coordinator Kira Burdeshaw says they try to find a way to bring science and history alive. "Various special exhibits we bring usually during the springtime for school groups and families to come into this year of course is dinosaur.
"The exhibit displays skeletons, fleshed out dinosaurs and animatronic dinosaurs. We also have "please touch" areas, down and dirty activities like the fossil dig pit the stegosaurs puzzle and we actually have a replica they can also touch."
Burdeshaw says the real prize is seeing the children’s reactions to the exhibit. “Grins and smiles whenever they come out of the dinosaur exhibit and we find that the children are teaching us something about dinosaurs."
