July 23 at 1:00 pm. Krypton Cougars Robotics Team. Join our local FIRST Robotics Team, fresh from competing at the World Championship in Detroit, as they demonstrate their robots.

July 30 at 1:00 pm. Dinosaur Dig. Field Paleontologists Mike and Roberta Straka will construct a dinosaur dig site right in the Hershey Public Library. Children will dig for REAL dinosaur bones. Next, we will identify the bones and finally, they will place the fossils on a Triceratops cut out. They will actually build a Triceratops with the bones that they discover.

In addition, before each dig, Mike will present a 30-minute interactive fossil talk to get our Jr. Paleontologists ready to go on their dig. During the talk, Mike will cover how and where we find fossils. He will showcase a 66-million-year-old meteorite, that we believe, is part of the meteorite that started the great extinction. **Space is limited for the dinosaur dig. Please register each child who will be participating to ensure a place. Everyone is welcome to listen to the introductory talk.
