Project Description

Field Work focuses on teaching young children the workflow of a paleontologist and how homology is used to determine fossil reconstruction. In this desktop experience, users can choose dig locations to uncover bones, ‘dig’ for bones by tapping patches of rock/dirt, use generalized structures to align the bones into their proper orientation, and compare the homology of their bones with extant species through a comparison question.
