PUNXSUTAWNEY — It's a subject that perks up the ears of almost every young child — DINOSAURS!

Over the course of the past week, the 4- and 5-year-olds at the Rainbow Express Nursery School have been studying dinosaurs, and last Friday, they were excited to receive a visit from an employee who works at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh.

They were even more excited when they learned that she was from the Dinosaur Detectives program.

The school received the visit as part of the Students Extra Educational Development (S.E.E.D.) Program, which is sponsored by Shop n' Save.
