Educating and Inspiring the Youngest Scientists
We believe that all children, fueled by endless imagination and insatiable curiosity, are inherently natural scientists.
Every Child is a Scientist
Every child is a scientist. Their curiosity and thirst for knowledge - especially about the natural world - is insatiable. But there's one subject they love above all others: dinosaurs! Dinosaurs and paleontology are a perfect way to nurture and develop a child's instinctual love of learning because they are natural gateways to so many other sciences: biology and geology of course, but also physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science, mathematics, and more.
Our educators have created a diverse slate of engaging, hands-on programs and partnerships designed to inspiring our youngest scientists. This - above all others - is our highest priority and greatest responsibility.
Field Station: Dinosaurs
The Bighorn Basin Paleontological Institute has partnered with Field Station: Dinosaurs to create the most fun and exciting dinosaur and paleontology programming anywhere! Through games, songs, and special events, you'll never have so much fun learning about - and being surrounded by - life-size dinosaurs!
Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County, Montana
The BBPI has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County (Montana) to create two exciting summer camp programs for summer 2017. In our Dinosaur Treasures In Our Backyard program, kids will not only learn all about dinosaurs and paleontology, but some also will get to be paleontologists by joining us to collect fossils in the field!
