We’re doing our first comic con panel! Join our crew of Southern California paleontologists on a prehistoric journey through the highs (and extreme lows) of paleontology on film! From classics like The Valley of Gwangi to the newest Jurassic World, hold on to your butts – it’s going to be a wild (and scientific!) ride through the cinematic history of paleontology.

Dr. Andrew Farke, curator of the Alf Museum
Dr. Jessie Atterholt, Alf Museum research associate

After the panel, meet all the paleontologists and ask them your questions at the Western Science Center booth (#131).
