The ninth-annual "Dinosaurs and Disasters" event will be 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 2, at the University of Nebraska State Museum of Natural History in Morrill Hall, south of 14th and Vine streets on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus.

One of Lincoln's most exciting Earth science learning events for children and their families, "Dinosaurs and Disasters" is hosted by the State Museum and the UNL Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Regular museum admission will be charged. Parking is free in front of the museum.

UNL scientists and students will provide hands-on activities and demonstrations to engage visitors in scientific discovery. Topics include fossils, tsunamis, tornadoes, meteorites, microbes, drought, Antarctica and more. Children will have the opportunity to give a weather forecast like a meteorologist and dig for fossils like a paleontologist. Visitors are welcome to bring a rock or fossil for a scientist to identify. They are also encouraged to bring canned food items for the UNL American Association of Petroleum Geologists Student Chapter's food drive to benefit the People's City Mission.
