In the event of Museum Night 2016, the theme was “Waves”.

We had workshop of making trilobites out of paper. We explained on the exhibition “Estonian Energy Industry” that the main raw material used for Estonian electricity is oil shale and that is formed by organics. We showed the fossils in the oil shale and studied some of them more thoroughly. We had a small collection of rocks and fossils from TUT Institute of Geology and we explained their life, eating habits etc. It was one of the main attractions during the night. Children loved to make trilobites out of paper. For smaller ones we had easier version of the trilobite rings and more skilled children could make even more detailed and lifelike trilobite.

This workshop we have used also afterwards for educational programs.
