STEAM Cafe: Dinosaurs: A Catalyst for Critical Thought



Dinosaur provide an effective means for developing more than just knowledge of extinct reptiles. Passion for dinosaurs, when properly directed, can trigger interest in science and be used to develop critical thinking skills. Examination of both scientific and popular dinosaur paleontology can develop competence in information analysis, perception of flawed arguments, recognition of persuasion techniques, and application of disciplined thought processes.  Dinosaurs can be applied to illustrate examples of logical fallacies and flawed arguments. Additionally, television documentaries can be used to examine the popular portrayal of dinosaurs and illustrate the disconnect between scientific fact and storytelling techniques.
