World-renowned Tyrannosaurus rex expert Dr. John Hutchinson will share the latest research on how dinosaurs moved, and how their walking and running changed over time—especially as they evolved into sizeable giants. Learn why Tyrannosaurus rex was not a fast runner, and how living cousins of extinct dinosaurs and computer models help us understand how dinosaur movement worked.

This lecture is open to everyone but is geared toward ages 10 & up. Pre-registration is recommended

Please note: This event takes place at UW's Kane Hall room 130. Click here for directions.
