What’s scarier than the thought of dinosaurs once again roaming the earth, Jurassic Park-style? What about robot terminator dinos?

Don’t make any sudden movements.

Well, we have good news and bad news. The “bad” news is that we’ve got robot dinosaurs headed to our Sugar Land campus. The good news is they’re not yet self-aware. Yippee!

That’s right, beginning this Saturday, April 14, through Sunday, September 30, the HMNS Sugar Land location will feature a “Dinosaur Discovery,” with robotic dinos that were developed by LA’s Kokoro Dinosaurs in cooperation with some of the nation’s most prominent paleontologists.

Each dino is scientifically accurate, with pneumatic movements and patented skin texturing to give them the most life-like appearance possible.

Among the robots are an Albertosaurus, two Triceratops, a Maiasaura with an egg nest, and an Apatosaurus.

    My five year old is SO excited! We’ve never visited the Sugarland campus before, and this is the perfect opportunity for my budding paleontologist!
