Journey to Queensland, Australia for an adventure of a lifetime! Students will learn foundational concepts in sedimentary geology, skeletal anatomy, evolution, and ecology against the backdrop of the incredible Australian Outback. Explore the natural history of Australia as we excavate fossilized giant fish and marine reptiles, and learn the history of the amazing wildlife that inhabits Australia today. This program will include groups of American and Australian high school students working and learning together in the classroom and in the field. During this trip, students will work with expert paleontologists and science educators in established field areas and dig sites, collecting material that will contribute to ongoing research on Australian natural history.

The FHSU Sternberg Museum is thrilled to offer this program in cooperation with Kronosaurus Korner Museum in Richmond, Queensland!
