Utah students get hands-on experience with dinosaurs
Students from Taylorsville Elementary School helped the Natural History Museum of Utah on Tuesday unveil a new Traveling Treasures exhibit titled "A Fossil's Journey."
The exhibit, a partnership between the museum and Zions Bank, uses interactive activities to tell the story of how scientists discover fossils in the field and how these fossils travel to a museum to be researched.
As part of the event Tuesday, students were able to touch a rare dinosaur skin impression, see a variety of bone and plant fossils and try their hand using tools to prep a fossil jacket from the field.
The exhibit will be displayed in Zions Banks statewide.
