There is general public awareness that an asteroid impact coincided with the end of the “Age of the Dinosaurs,” but do you know what scientific evidence led to this conclusion? In this session, we will find out how scientists “do science” and then examine the evidence for asteroid impact as the primary mechanism for dinosaur extinction. Participants will have an opportunity to handle an iron meteorite and examine tektites (pieces of glass found at impact sites). Participants will also find out where to go for prospecting dinosaur fossils and who to contact for field excursions.
