Dabble in Prehistoric Seas

Educational Camp

DiPS

This five-day educational camp “starts” at the birth/creation of earth over 4 ½ billion years ago. Traveling through simulated time, students get “up close and personal” with the variety of life in the savage prehistoric seas ranging throughout the geological time scale. Through videos, computers, fossil labs, and other unique hands-on activities, students learn about the dominant inhabitants of each period, what survived and what caused major extinctions, and where Bermuda fit into the scheme of the prehistoric seas. Students will make casts of some “key” marine fossils such as mosasaur and shark teeth, ammonites, and trilobites, as well as excavate, analyze and interpret real fossil remains like paleontologists.
