Field Station: Dinosaurs presents Dr. Scott Sampson of PBS show ‘Dinosaur Train’ on Aug. 8

SECAUCUS – The Field Station: Dinosaurs’ “Super Star of Science” program continues with a special appearance and program by Dr. Scott Sampson of the hit PBS show “Dinosaur Train” on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 2 p.m. This kid-friendly interactive presentation – tailored for 2-8 year-olds and all other dinosaur enthusiasts – offers junior paleontologists a chance to learn the ins and outs of being a dinosaur paleontologist, from that “Aha!” moment of discovery, to digging up fossils, to preparing them back at the museum, to studying them as a scientist.
What is a dinosaur and what isn’t? How do we reconstruct dinosaurs? What did dinosaurs eat? Dr. Scott will lead this lively tour and even share a big secret at the end.
His presentation will be followed by a book signing where visitors may purchase his latest book, “How to Raise a Wild Child.” Then at 5:30 p.m. he will be in the Commander’s Tent for a meet and greet with season pass holders and visitors with the Commander’s Pass.
Field Station: Dinosaurs’ 2015 season is in its final weeks in Secaucus before the park moves to its next location.
This special event on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 2 p.m. is free with admission. The presentation will take place in the Goya Amphitheater in Field Station: Dinosaurs, 1 Dinosaur Way, Secaucus.
