Items identified in previous years have included a whale jawbone, a green-beetle bracelet from Brazil, and a 5,000-year-old stone spear point from Morocco. New this year! In conjunction with the special exhibition Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, participants will have the chance to explore the science of flight across multiple animal groups, including bats, birds, and insects. Also new this year, you will discover how scientists are using 3D scanners and printers to better observe and understand a variety of objects. Have a chance to scan and receive a digital copy of your identified item and take home a special 3D-printed souvenir. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=136834 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
