Bring Spinosaurus Encounter! to your school

Spiny & KatieAssembly Show

Spinosaurus Encounter! is the new headliner in Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s educational programming. A science-meets-entertainment show that travels anywhere folks are interested in dinosaurs, Spinosaurus Encounter! introduces the audience to Spiny, the museum’s 10 foot tall 15 foot long mechanical puppet. Volunteers from the audience help Spiny’s human handler, Dr. Dino, “dig” for fossils of Spinosaurus in the Egyptian desert and hypothesize about Spiny’s habitat. The audience then imagines Spiny to life and is delighted at her antics. Despite the playfulness, the show is big on pint-sized science.
