Deep Time Detectives

Offered by: Denver Museum of Nature and Science
Program Description:
Would you believe that long ago, your state might have been home to an ocean, a rain forest, or volcanoes? Did you know you can find ocean fossils on top of mountain peaks? It’s true! Earth has undergone many dramatic transformations in the last 4.5 billion years, and it’s up to geologists like Dr. James Hagadorn to unearth our planet’s mysterious past. Dr. Hagadorn, curator of geology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, works as a deep time detective, examining rocks, fossils, meteorites, and more to tell us about the past, present, and future of our planet. What secrets are locked away in ordinary stone? All good detectives rely on keen questions, and yours will drive this live look behind the scenes of the Museum and back in time!
