Dino’s - our ‘roarsome’ Kid’s Club – is back with a bang!!!
After a bit of a break, we are raring to go again and welcome you all back to our awesome Saturday sessions. So – what is Dino’s? Well, it's Dynamic Earth's amazing kid’s club with a difference! Our main aim is to inspire youngsters to discover more about science, and learn all about our wonderful planet and the things which can affect it. Children under 14 years can join Dino’s free of charge and will have access to our collection of awesome weekly workshops, and a whole host of other exciting benefits.
Join us every week during term time for a 1 ½ hour long indoor workshop, covering all manner of science-related fun – from fabulous frogs and desert discoveries, to polar bear puzzles and deep-sea divers.... Dino's workshops run 3 times every Saturday (10:00, 13:00 and 15:00) from September to March, and cost £1.50 per child, for each session. Each of our brand-new workshops are packed with exciting games, crafts, experiences and challenges and must be booked in advance to guarantee your place!
Even better - Dino’s members can also get FREE entry to Dynamic Earth on a Saturday (when accompanied by a full-paying adult/concession). As well as 15% discount in our Natural Selection Gift Shop, 10% discount in our Food Chain Café AND a voucher for an awesome free gift when you join up!
We kick off with our first Kid's Club workshop on the 25th September, with Dino’s guide to the Climate Crisis:
Join Dino and some Operation Earth scientists to discover what climate change is and why it is important that we can make changes in our lives to stop the changes we are seeing around the world because of our warming climate.
Workshops combine science games and discovery with creative crafts and exploration... Find out more and register for this workshop online via our website!
Throughout the year, we also run themed drop-in days where everyone can join the fun - our first Family Drop-in Day is on the 2nd October to celebrate Maths Week Scotland. No booking is required for this free event, and everyone can come along and try out some of our creative and crafty Dino’s activities!
Dino’s members can also access school holiday outdoor sessions, digital technology workshops and our ever-popular storytelling club for even the littlest adventurers!
Dino’s Outdoors – come join us during the school holidays for some outdoor adventures! Release your inner explorer and head out into the stunning Holyrood Park to find out more about the flora & fauna around us, and how climate change is affecting our planet.
DigiDinos - sessions for 8-14 year olds, where you can learn all about how scientists use technology to explore the natural world - try your hand at coding, build a wildlife camera trap, create your own ocean-themed computer game, and even become a documentary film maker!
