This adventure takes you back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the Earth! Well, maybe not exactly time travel, but learning about dinosaurs, how they worked, and how we can discover how they worked is what this adventure is all about. WitmerLab at Ohio University is a world-renown research laboratory on the OU-Athens campus that does scientific research into the lives of dinosaurs and their modern-day relatives. The adventure will largely consist of a behind-the-scenes tour of the WitmerLab facilities conducted by Professor Lawrence Witmer, who has been at OU for over 20 years, has appeared on dozens of television documentaries. WitmerLab is home to the largest collection in the state of Ohio of skull casts of dinosaurs and other extinct creatures—over 100 skulls—as well as thousands of specimens of their modern-day relatives, ranging from ostriches and crocodiles to rhinos and giraffes. The lab houses skulls of such dino rock stars as T. rex, Parasaurolophus, Diplodocus, and Ankylosaurus.
The tour also includes a visit to the WitmerLab walk-in freezer where donated animal casualties from all over the globe—such as rhino, bison, and alligators—await anatomical study. You will also learn how scientists use the Witmer lab to study how dinosaurs breathed, how they fed, how they kept from overheating, how smart they were, etc. Come ready to learn, ready to ask questions, ready to think, ready to take pictures!
