Red Dirt Dinos
Monday March 10
Area families have a limited time left to see prehistoric creatures roam at Science Musem Oklahoma. Red Dirt Dinos, an exhibit created exclusively for the Oklahoma Museum Network funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, will close to the public on March 23. The 1,500 square-foot exhibit features three interactive robotic dinosaurs and a variety of hands-on components that help visitors explore Oklahoma’s dinosaurs.Red Dirt Dinos features three dinosaurs: Acrocanthosaurus, the official dinosaur of the State of Oklahoma; Tenontosaurus, the long-tailed herbivore; and its main predator, Deinonychus, whose grasping hands with large sickle-shaped claws enabled it to hunt with switchblade precision.
The dinosaurs operate using an infrared technology found in current video gaming consoles, enabling the dinosaurs to not only react to exhibit visitors but also to other dinosaurs within the exhibit, creating a fully immersive experience.
