The word fossil comes from the Latin word fossus, meaning “having been dug up.”

Fossils are often found in rock formations deep within the earth. Join us for an experiment simulating the fun and challenging aspects of digging for fossils and open your mind to the possibilities that some “fossils” are still alive as relatively unchanged and ancient organisms.

This fall, Super Science will be hosted by guest scientist Ashley Gary, The Wildlife Host!

Ashley Gary is a science communicator known online as The Wildlife Host (@thewildlifehost). Since 2018 she has been sharing her love and passion for wildlife with her community on both Instagram and Twitter. Along with sparking curiosity in people about the natural world, she also promotes positivity and following your dreams. It was following her dreams and forging ahead that lead to the creation of The Wildlife Host brand and the opportunity to reach thousands of people with the message of appreciation and stewardship of the biodiversity around us.
