Here's a fun activity for tweens and teens and their parents through the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences.
This one, called Oh What a Relief: Faux Fossil Modeling and Mold Making Class, is designed for ages 11 and up. Kids ages 11 to 15 must be with a registered adult. It runs 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., March 26 and April 2. The fee is $25 for the series, which takes place at the Nature Research Center in downtown Raleigh.
Here's a description: " If you’ve ever wanted to start making your own models, or if you’re interesting in making duplicate models, then this is a great introduction to the sculptural process. In this two part class we will be stepping back into prehistory for a little inspiration. Jason Whitman, from our museum exhibits team, will show you some techniques and tricks to make your very own fossil representation."
