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.
