With "Jurassic World" in theaters, families can explore the science behind the dinosaur movies at the Center for Science Teaching & Learning (CSTL) in Rockville Centre.

Families with kids ages 13 years and older are welcome on Friday from 7:30-9 p.m. Dr. Ray Ann Havasy will lead a discussion about her experience working with Steven Spielberg as a consultant for the first "Jurassic Park" movie. She'll talk about how she used props from the film to educate families about dinosaurs and what it was like working behind the scenes.

CTSL's resident paleontologist, David Moscato, will dive into the facts about the movie and answer questions about dinosaurs.

Kids will have the opportunity to make their own fossil to take home with them. The price is $10 per person; reserve your spot by calling 516-764-0045.
