The Age of Dinosaurs: Bringing The Past To Life brought together four scientists relating to the theme of dinosaurs, early earth, and the Dinosaurs: Unearthed exhibit that premiered at the Detroit Science Center on the night of the ScienceMakers program.  Each scientist spoke at length about encouraging students to follow their dreams, what first motivated them to pursue science (from the Bionic Woman to The Thing From Another Planet), and why they enjoy what they do.  The program was moderated by Andrew Humphrey, Emmy award-winning meteorologist and reporter WDIV-TV Local 4 in Detroit.


The featured scientists included:

  • Scott Edwards, Professor of Evolutionary Biology, Harvard College
  • George Jones, Professor of Biochemistry, Emory University
  • Ayanna Howard, Professor of Robotics & Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • George Philander, Professor of Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences, Princeton University
The Detroit Science Center was one of ScienceMakers' science center partners in 2011.
