West Texas Science Center Field Trips

Field trips are organized for students in cooperation with their various schools.  One of the most interesting to the students and their instructors is the paleontology trips to the BigBend area of Texas where students have "hands on" opportunities to excavate real fossil remains of Cretaceous-age vertebrates.  New species have been discovered, and extended range information determined.  These trips are led by members of the organization, and where new findings have justified professional description papers have been published in national journals with WTSC personnel as co-authors.
