Dora at the Maritime
Thursday, June 16, 2011
Dora the Explorer will be at the Maritime Aquarium to kick off Dinosaur Summer, an exhibit of life-sized robotic dinosaurs on June 18th from 10 AM - 5 PM.
The Nickelodeon costumed character will roam the Aquarium in 20-minute intervals throughout the day. She’ll be happy to pose with kids and families for photos.
The robotic exhibit, lets kids imagine what it might have been like to grow up as a dinosaur – how fast young dinosaurs grew, how big they got, what they ate and how they were protected from danger.
The dinosaurs move, roar and even blink their eyes in realistic fashion. But they’re fully lighted – not dark and scary. It's an educational dinosaur exhibit fit for even the youngest visitor. One display will even offer a peek inside a robotic dinosaur, so kids can see how it works and even control it. An outdoor fossil dig will entertain budding paleontologists.
