‘BE THE DINOSAUR’ EXHIBIT TO OPEN AT THE FLINT HILLS DISCOVERY CENTER

Manhattan, Kan. – The Flint Hills Discovery Center’s (FHDC) newest exhibit, Be the Dinosaur, will be on exhibit from May 12 – September 3, 2018.

This exhibit uses virtual technology to allow visitors the chance to live like their favorite dinosaurs.

Visitors utilize simulator pods to stomp around prehistoric times to learn about behavior patterns of dinosaurs and their ecosystems.  Some of the themes learned in this exhibit include “How do I behave in groups?”, “How do I find food?” and “Do I defend myself?”.

Besides virtual technology, there will also be hands-on aspects to the exhibit. Visitors can explore a dig pit to find fossils, examine a triceratops skull, put a T. Rex puzzle together and more.

Regular admission rates apply.
