About the Project
Dinosaur Train is a daily animated show on PBS Kids for preschoolers to learn about natural science, natural history and paleontology. Each half-hour episode of this series, produced in CGI-animated format by the Jim Henson Company, features Buddy, a preschool-aged Tyrannosaurus Rex, and his adoptive Pteranodon family. Also included are live-action segments hosted by paleontologist Scott Sampson. http://pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain/
Maura was recruited by PBS Kids to work with the Jim Henson Company to provide creative content development, education integration, and the initial community outreach plan. She was a member of the advisory committee during the development phase of the project.
