IMSA Great Minds Program - Jack Horner, Paleontologist "Dinosaur Science in the 21st Century" January 22, 2003
Some of us learn best in the classroom, and some of us ... well, we don't. But we still love to learn, to find out new things about the world and challenge our minds. We just need to find the right place to do it, and the right community to learn with. In this charming talk, author John Green shares the world of learning he found in online video.

How do you learn about the social behaviour of animals that have been extinct for millions of years? Palaeontologist David Hone discusses what the fossil record can – and can’t – tell us about how the dinosaurs lived. Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Piecing together the behaviour of long extinct groups is naturally very difficult, but can be done with care. New fossil from the Gobi deserts of Mongolia are helping us work out how these animals lived and died together. David Hone is a palaeontologist and writer. His research focuses on the behaviour and ecology of the dinosaurs and their flying relatives, the pterosaurs. He writes about palaeontology and science outreach online through his own blog and on the Guardian. http://www.davehone.co.uk/ The Ri is on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ri_science and Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/royalinstitution and Tumblr: http://ri-science.tumblr.com/ Our editorial policy: http://www.rigb.org/home/editorial-policy Subscribe for the latest science videos: http://bit.ly/RiNewsletter
Enjoy the full interview with world-renowned paleontologist Jack Horner. SciShow host Hank Green digs deep to find out details on Jack's findings and learn more about his "chickenosaurus."
Dr Stephen Brusatte, Chancellor's Fellow in Vertebrate Palaentology, delivers the second 2014 Science on a Winter's Evening lecture entitled, Tyrannosaur Discoveries. In this lecture, Dr Brusatte introduces "Pinocchio rex" and other newly discovered tyrannosaurs, and describes how palaeontologists discover fossils, using cutting- edge techniques to study dinosaur evolution. Recorded on 4 December 2014 at the University of Edinburgh's Michael Swann Building.
Jack Horner, renowned paleontologist and consultant on the Jurassic Park series drops by Google to discuss "Jurassic World", glow in the dark unicorns, and the "chickenosaurus".
Jack Horner is a professor at Montana State University, the Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies, and has made such important contributions to paleontology as providing some of the first clear evidence dinosaurs cared for their young, leading the discovery of the one of the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons, known as "B. Rex", and is currently leading the way to engineer a "chickenosaurus."
