Science Lab

So, you want to be a Paleontologist?

Dig into the underground world of paleontology!

Live via Zoom

Description

The Gympie Bone Museum and Rest in Pieces has joined forces to bring you an evening  with Sarah Forrest to discuss her into becoming a Paleontologist in Australia! 


Sarah will discuss some of the skill set required to get into this fascinating field and some of the work that she has completed to date.  Sarah is currently employed at the world-class Australian Age of Dinosaurs facility in Winton , Queensland. Her days consist of conducting guided tours of the fossil preparation laboratory, fossil collection room and March of the Titanosaurs exhibit. She also has responsibilities as on-site caretaker and guide at Lark Quarry, home of the Dinosaur Stampede National Monument and participates in regular fossil digs conducted by AAOD. This is your opportunity to find out what it takes to work in this exciting field.


You are invited to engage and ask Sarah questions, so that you can get the most out of the session. 


If you can't attend the live session, you will have access to a filmed version for 10 days after the event.

Taxidermy - Taxis 'arrangement' + Derma 'skin'

Natalie Delaney-John has travelled far and wide to learn the art of taxidermy and has been mentored by some of the world's best and most awarded taxidermists. She is the proud founder of Rest in Pieces, which launched Australia's first taxidermy workshops, conducts talks, demonstrations and now sells DIY kits so that you can learn this beautiful art in the comfort of your own home.


Since 2016, the Rest in Pieces team has expanded further into the 'dying arts', offering new classes and workshops aimed at preserving and presenting natural specimens.
