The Dinosaur Moveable Museum brings the latest discoveries about dinosaurs to schools, libraries and community centers around New York City, in a 37’ long converted recreational vehicle. The exhibition is designed for Grades 3-8.
Inside, three computer stations offer programs that reinforce the exhibition’s main goals – helping kids understand dinosaur evolution, and the possible causes of extinction 65 million years ago.
Trackways focuses on what paleontologists have learned about dinosaur behavior from studying their footprints. Feathers highlights the connections between dinosaurs and birds. The interactives includes games, videos and and demonstrations.
How a Dinosaur Becomes a Fossil is an original animated film that follows a coelophysis from its death 200 million years ago to its discovery as a fossil in 20th century New Mexico.
Trackways and Feathers were built in Flash, Fossilization was created in Maya, and all three programs were output in Director and play on touch screens. We also built a flash Administration menu to allow the Moveable Museum staff to control the displays and audio levels for all three programs.
