Beneath the stark and snowy landscapes of the southernmost continent, there is evidence of dinosaurs and prehistoric life that existed more than 70 million years ago.
Learn about scientists’ quest to uncover fossils in Antarctica at a museum Pub Talk, where you can socialize with paleontologists and new friends who are also interested in science and culture over a drink at a fun, informal meet up.
Carnegie Museum of Natural History paleontologists Dr. Matt Lamanna and Dr. Abagael West will discuss their recent expedition to Antarctica and ongoing research on dinosaurs and other life forms that lived during the Cretaceous period.
Dr. Lamanna and Dr. West will present fossils collected on their expedition for participants to examine and preview a new, 10-minute documentary about the expedition that features the stunning and sweeping landscapes of Antarctica and tells our scientists’ stories.
Join us in a private event space in Dave & Busters at the Waterfront. This will be an opportunity to ask questions, engage with real-life paleontologists, and celebrate their latest achievements along with other members of the local community.
Those interested can learn more about the expedition in a recent Discover Magazine article for some background on the expedition and our scientists’ work.
This is a free event, but participants are encouraged to sign up through our Meetup Group.
