Once Upon a Time Capsule: From Star Dust to San Francisco Sand Dunes

Imagine you are digging a tunnel under your sand castle at Ocean Beach and suddenly, you hit a big metal box. Is it Black Beard’s buried treasure? No – even better – it’s a TIME CAPSULE containing relics from long ago! A piece of volcanic rock, a Megalodon shark tooth, an obsidian arrowhead, a wooly mammoth rib, a nugget of gold…

This week, we will travel back in time to the very formation of our solar system. From there, with the contents of our time capsule as our guide, we will journey through the eras exploring where we came from and how we got here. Learn about the very first multi-cellular organisms, explore the landscape of ancient volcanoes and oceans when dinosaurs ruled supreme, and discover what life was like for the very first Neanderthals. From sea sponges to human societies, this week will be a wild trip through time!
