“Life will find a way.”

Considered an instant classic, Jurassic Park (1993) spawned four sequels and inspired a whole generation of scientists. After a showing of Jurassic Park, we will discuss how our understanding of dinosaurs changed over 20+ years? To answer this and other questions, we will be joined by Emily Lake from Chester Zoo to pick apart the science behind Jurassic Park, and hear about her work as a zookeeper managing an animatronic dinosaur exhibit!
