Educational Outreach

Guest Lectures

We at Primordial love nothing more than to share our love and passion for the natural world and its rich history with others! Via our Guest Lectures, Paleontologist Ethan will attend an educational event, ranging from Elementary age all the way through University and College courses. He will bring both real fossils and replicas to discuss the themes and topics of the lecture (provided by the event coordinator). We also customize these talks to the specific ages, needs, and knowledge of the groups learning. An absolute hands on blast from the past for any educational event. Hourly rate differs depending on needs, commute, and requested biofacts inventory.

Birthday Party

What better gift to get the dinosaur obsessed individual in your life than a dinosaur skull showing up for their birthday party? In the Birthday Party program, Paleontologist Ethan comes with various skulls, replicas, and real fossils to both amaze and educate any age of person interested in the prehistoric past. In fact the person who is being celebrated will even leave their party with a gift only Primordial can give, a real chunk of dinosaur bone! Program is flexible, and typically varies from an educational talk and Q & A to themed activities and games. Content and talk is specifically customized to the ages, needs, and specifications of each party. Hourly rate is dependent on timing, needs, commute, which dinosaur skulls are requested,and which tier of party favor package requested.

Private or Special Event

Have a corporate event in need of a T. rex? A private themed class needing that prehistoric touch? Wanting your special screening of Jurassic Park to have an educational or authentic twist? We’ve got you covered! Regardless of the event, Primordial is happy to oblige and bring the dinosaurs to any party, celebration, or meeting. Hourly rate differs, inquire for more information.
