Video Webinar: Fossil Friday with Paleontologist Gene Hunt 

Connect with paleontologists and other experts from the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History to explore fossils and connections to Earth's history in this FREE video webinar series. The experts will prompt students to make and share observations throughout the webinar and will take student questions throughout the program.


Gene Hunt is a paleontologist who studies fossil remains of tiny animals called ostracodes. Join him to learn about these strange critters and how they can help us to understand extinction and how Earth’s creatures change over millions of years.
