Distance Education Programs

Get connected to paleontology with Distance Education Programs. Our Distance Education school programs are science based, visual, interactive, and most importantly interesting.

The Distance Education programs include videos that explain fossilization processes, audio files, diagrams, and quizzes. These programs have been developed for school classroom settings. An instructor will be available for Q&A after the students have viewed the materials with their teacher.

On completion of a program the student will be able to print a noncredit certificate.
