Beyond the Beanstalk's Jurassic Deep workshop is here to bring the world of dinosaur STEM activities to you!
We will tell you all about those swimming dinosaurs, long neck, or big teeth or even about their flippers! Learn some facts about megalodons, pliosaurs, ammonites and of course, plesiosaur facts.

In this Storytime STEM workshop children will hear and view the story of The Playful Plesiosaur on our giant storybook. The playful plesiosaur has been around for a long time and uses forgotten underwater tunnels to navigate his way around the world. He likes to visit different places and different countries, creeping up on people and playing tricks. In the story he visits, Scotland, Australia, Japan and Canada where he photo bombs wedding photos, is the star of some tourist photos, scares a swimmer and kayaker!

In this workshop children will look at some fossils and fossil replicas. Children will learn about one of the oldest living fossils and how it hasn't changed or evolved in 300 million years!
 Your service will also get to keep a fossil. hatching kit and grow tank and see the strange little creatures that grow.

The workshop however isn't over as children will then look at what a plesiosaur looked like and then embark on an activity where science and engineering are needed. Every child will construct a squeezy plesiosaur cartesian diver and discuss the science involved. While this activity takes a bit of concentration, those fine motor skills will be getting a workout!
