  Dino Dig  
(Arts)

Before the "Dinosaur Petting Zoo" begins, children can join a DinoDig, a traditional scavenger hunt with a technological twist. Accompanied by an adult with an iPhone or Android phone, participants adopt the role of a paleontologist's apprentice and visit various locations guided by a location-based, augmented reality app. The game allows participants to interact with their environment at each location and learn dinosaur-related facts. Each stop includes a challenge (answering a trivia question or completing other tasks) to earn virtual dinosaur bones and clues to the next location.

The DinoDig starts at the plaza between the Graduate Life Center and Squires Student Center and the predetermined on-campus route stretches less than a mile. The event officially starts at 1 p.m., but participants can join in any time until 2:30 p.m. The hunt takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and will finish at Henderson Lawn, the location of the "Dinosaur Petting Zoo" performance. DinoDig is designed for children who can read or have an adult who can provide assistance.
