Explore-a-saurus has been developed to engage children aged between 5 – 12 years and their families, although the exhibition provides a broader appeal to fascinate and inform people of all ages. Different exhibits will appeal to different ages with Dinosaur Dig and Paint-a-saurus capturing the attention of primary school groups, while secondary school students can test their strength against the Might of a T-Rex bite or use problem solving skills in Track-a-saurus. Family visitors can work together to control Robo-saurus and see how dinosaurs became extinct in the theatrette. Visitors will be captivated by the collection of animatronic dinosaurs that move and roar in replica settings of their prehistoric. Great opportunities exist for media exposure and sponsorship, as Explore-a-saurus taps into the eternal fascination of life on Earth, millions of years ago.
