Kelly Lubbers coordinated Night at the Museum. She wrangles kids while dressed as Doctor 4 from Dr. Who. She knitted her 20-foot scarf herself.

Hundreds of costumed children celebrated Halloween surrounded by dinosaur bones inside the School of Mines and Technology Museum of Geology on Saturday evening. This is the ninth year the school has hosted trick-or-treaters for its Night at the Museum.

One of the organizers tells SDPB's Victoria Wicks that children's interest in dinosaurs can lead to careers in science.
