MEET THE T. REX

JUNE 2018: FIF’s T. rex encounter

This summer, First Initiative Foundation (FIF) and ifc mall present MEET THE T. REX, Hong Kong’s first encounter with a real  T. rex skeleton!

Taking place in ifc mall from 7th – 27th June, the exhibition is free to the public and features a full-size T. rex skeleton, a T. rex thigh bone that can be touched, a section of an Edmontosaurus spine with a bite mark, and a T. rex tooth.

To further the educational outreach of the exhibition, an Adventure Trail consisting of checkpoints filled with dinosaur facts will be featured throughout the mall. Videos and AR (Augmented Reality) technology enhance the experience and encourage all to get up, get out and explore!

Visitors can pick up a complimentary Adventure Passport and collect stamps at each of the six checkpoints. Once all six stamps have been collected, visitors can redeem a small gift at the end point where there will also be a Pop-up Store. Pop-up Merchandise includes a bilingual children’s book-set Smile with Fifi!, illustrated by Hong Kong illustrator Jeanie Leung, which contains a meaningful and positive message to our young readers, in addition to Fifi and Friends, an educational activity book. Through simple text and illustrations, children will be able to learn about these ancient creatures and use the range of activities as a chance to grow their love for science and discovery. FIF’s specially created soft toy Fifi the T. rex and dinosaur t-shirts for explorers can also be found at the store. All proceeds from the pop-up store will be donated to FIF, to raise support for their important work in uplifting Hong Kong.
