The weight of dinosaurs will be tackled at the November edition of the Tate Geological Museum’s popular Saturday Club.

Students will use the principle of volumetric displacement on scale-sized models of dinosaurs to determine how much each animal actually weighed in life. Taught by Museum Education Specialist Russell Hawley, the session will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Saturday Club is free and open to children ages 7-14. The Tate Geological Museum is located on the southern end of the Casper College campus; look for the life-sized T.rex bronze near the Tate or call the museum at 307-268-2447.
