How real are the dinosaurs in Jurassic World? Find out and ask your own questions at our Speakeasy on June 21st!
Ever since the 1993 classic Jurassic Park and its subsequent sequels were unleashed into the world, the series has ushered in a new generation of public fascination into prehistoric Earth and inspired a new generation of paleontologists from all over the world. But has the Jurassic Park series been able to keep up with the latest paleontological discoveries, or is the series facing extinction in light of new dinosaur science? Is it possible to tease the paleo-science from paleo-fiction? What is in the realm of possibility or merely speculation concerning these enigmatic, extinct creatures? Join paleontologist Dr. Eric Gorscak in Science Spoilers: Jurassic World as he discusses the evolving science witnessed in both the field of paleontology and in the blockbuster Jurassic Park movie series from the past 30 years.
Join us as we host our Speakeasy at The Hideout! Register early as space is limited. Food is not available for purchase at The Hideout (but fun and exciting drinks are!) so please come prepared.
