DinoFest 2023 Bones to Beasts

DinoFest 2023 DinoBite Speaker: Tim Lee

DinoBite Talk

Date and Time: Sunday, January 29, 2:00 p.m.–2:25 p.m.

Title of Lecture: I Ran Into a Dinosaur and Lived to Talk About It

Lecture Description: Most people will run into a dinosaur at some point in their lives. A few of us turn a chance encounter into a passion and then a career. But all of us can participate in the adventure of paleontology and participate in exciting new discoveries. As an exhibit designer, I’ve worked with diverse teams to develop dinosaur exhibitions over the years. See what it takes to make a dinosaur exhibition. Next time you run into a dinosaur, what adventure will you choose?
