In this special off-site Power Kids program, participants will use mold and casting techniques to create hand-made fossils. Participants will learn about how real fossils are formed, what they can tell us about the Earth’s past and what creatures used to roam the Earth. We will also explore images of Yto Barrada’s exhibition currently at The Power Plant Contemporary Gallery and be inspired by her work with fossils.
