The museum may be closed, but the education is still ongoing!
Even though the American Museum of Natural History had to close its doors, they are still keeping the museum alive online. Every Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm ET, they are playing previous recorded Facebook Live videos of its halls and collections, and they are also doing fun watch parties with science experts. So far they’ve shown the Hall of North American Mammals, the Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs, and the iconic Blue Whale. It really makes it feel like you’re back exploring the museum!
Also, tomorrow, Friday, March 27 at 1:30 pm ET, they will be having a watch party here on YouTube with astrophysicist Jackie Faherty and paleontologist Aki Watanabe. They’ll be rewatching all the museum’s “Space vs. Dinos” videos, where the experts answer questions like:
- How do we know an asteroid hit Earth 66 millions years ago?
- Did an asteroid kill the dinosaurs?
- How do we find new planets?
- How do you find dinosaur fossils?
And more. After, they’ll be available LIVE to answer all your burning questions about anything space or dinosaur related (like if space really conquered the dinos).
Tune in here tomorrow at 1:30 pm ET!
