Learn about these adorable creatures which are the oldest living live bearing mammals. They were here with the dinosaurs and still thriving! The Space Foundation will be demonstrating “infrared technology”. It is not only one of the newest things happening in science but it is used by animals. Reptiles can “see” in infrared, which allows them to spot prey in the dark or behind foliage. See how it works and get a hands on demonstration illuminating how hot you really are! Join Professor Steven Veatch in a hands on demonstration and help peel back the layers of time. Work with Ice Age fossils from a Columbian mammoth to tiny Ice Age fossils.
