Join us for January's Science Movie Night as we prepare to kick off DinoFest! On January 9, NHMU is featuring the film Jurassic Park at The City Library.

This 1990's film takes us back to prehistoric times as characters enter a theme-park like setting full of dinosaurs. 

Following the screening will be a presentation and Q&A by Mark Loewen, paleontology research associate at NHMU. 

Mark Loewen has been with the museum since 2000. Mark served as one of the scientific consultants to the design team for the Past Worlds gallery at the museum. He has secured nearly $300,000 in grants to facilitate a better understanding of dinosaurs and the world they lived in. In 2009, Loewen was awarded a Ph.D. in Geology from the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Utah. He holds a M.S. Degree in Paleontology from Loma Linda University in California and a B.A. in Chemistry, with a minor in Physics, from the Union College in Nebraska.
