SARATOGA SPRINGS — There are 14 of them that stand inside of Universal Presentation Hall, large as they once stood in real life when roaming the earth millions of years ago. 

Led by T-Rex - the grandest of them all - the life-sized metal sculptures sprawled across two of the floors at UPH weave science, art and innovation in a fun and educational way. 

“If Capital Region parents, grandparents, educators and scout leaders are looking for a way to keep youth engaged and their minds active this summer, there isn’t a better place to inspire them with hands-on education and entertainment,” says UPH director Teddy Foster. “And the adults will get just as much out of it as the kids.” 

Kinetics, biomechanics, and robotics. Sketching, drawing, and sculpting. They rattle and hum, their recycled metal limbs set into motion by viewer-triggered interactive pulleys. The visitor is taken on an interactive apprentice’s path that follows the story of the master artist, John Payne, captivating visitors while illustrating science and technology principles in a fun and engaging way. 

Dinosaurs in Motion, which opened this week, is presented by Adirondack Trust Company and on exhibit through Oct. 17 at UPH. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 youth and are available at: universalpreservationhall.org. UPH, a partner in the Proctors Collaborative, is located at 25 Washington St., Saratoga Springs.
