BRIDGING THE GAp between generations
"It’s hard to believe that these seemingly mythical creatures roamed our planet long ago, so getting up close to a fossil as remarkable as Big John inspires awe and sparks curiosity about the world around us.
We are so thankful to the Pagidipati family for their generous loan, which
will spark an interest in dinosaurs and science with young learners
and the entire Tampa Bay community."
