The best part of Science Odyssey (the nationwide STEM extravaganza that OWLconnected is celebrating for two weeks) is Science Rendezvous. This Saturday, dozens upon dozens of free events are happening in cities all across Canada. (If you're looking to plan your own Saturday, here's a link that will help.)
One such city is Kingston, Ontario, and we got a special invitation to watch them put together the day's star attraction: Dippy!
Dippy is a complete restoration of a Diplodocus skeleton that is owned by Research Casting International, from Trenton, Ontario. This crew is a world leader in fossil preparation and mounting and as a treat, they agreed to bring Dippy down for a free one-day viewing at Kingston's Science Rendezvous. Awesome!
What goes into building a skeleton of one of the longest land animals that ever lived? We got it all on camera!
