Doszpot Launches ‘Dinosaurs Down Under’ Exhibition

Shadow Minister for Education and Training, Steve Doszpot, is encouraging Canberrans to come along to the launch of the ‘Dinosaurs Down Under’ travelling exhibition at the National Dinosaur Museum this Saturday the 3rd of August at 10:00am.

The exhibition forms part of the programs for National Science Week, 10-18 August 2013.

“I am extremely honoured to be launching this new travelling exhibition that will take dinosaurs and scientists form the National Dinosaur Museum to ten regional centres in New South Wales and Victoria. It’s important that we motivate students and get them excited to learn new facts about science while having fun,” Mr Doszpot said today.

“The exhibition will include moving and roaring dinosaurs, stories about Australian extinct animals, prizes and giveaways and lively public forums.

“‘Dinosaurs Down Under’ is a great opportunity for students and parents to discover that palaeontology is a fascinating science that provides the key to understanding the future via unravelling the stories of the past.

“It is also a great credit to Dr Éva Papp from the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University, for her initiative in bringing this opportunity to Canberra.

“This is a worthwhile event and I encourage Canberra families to join me at the launch this Saturday,” Mr Doszpot concluded.
