Amazing Armoured Dinosaurs with Dr. Victoria Arbour

Ankylosaurs are called armoured dinosaurs because they have bony plates and spikes in their skin. 

Join curator of Paleontology Dr. Victoria Arbour as we make our own ankylosaurs out of play-doh and pasta, beads, or buttons. During this session you'll learn how animals use armour to protect themselves.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor. 

What you'll need:

  • Play-doh, clay or homemade salt dough (1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup water)
  • small dry pasta shapes (shells, orzo, stars, macaroni or bowties work great
  • small beads or buttons

Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
