Pliosaurus exhibition volunteers wanted at Bristol Museum.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to volunteer with Bristol Museum’s new and exciting exhibition Pliosaurus! Taking visitors on a journey back in time 150 million years when Bristol was once a Jurassic ocean ruled by the huge marine reptile, the pliosaur (Pliosaurus carpenteri). The exhibition will be a fully interactive experience and will include:
A time portal taking visitors back to Bristol 150 million years ago
A full-scale interactive model of our very own Pliosaurus carpenteri (8 metres long), including heartbeat, smelly breath and injuries to investigate
One of the largest and most complete pliosaur fossils in the world. Found by local fossil hunter Simon Carpenter.
6 satellite learning stations to discover how our pliosaur lived and died, including the skills and techniques used by palaeontologists throughout the process.
Focused on families with young children we’re looking for volunteers to engage, inspire and have fun as we take museum visitors through this interactive journey. The exhibition will run from June 17th until January 7th, 2018 with the key aims of creating a fun and memorable learning environment,helping to develop an interest in science, and encouraging further interaction with Bristol Museum.
