Mobile Museum Outreach Programs take the Museum to you, through guided inquiry using our collections objects. Physical Science, Earth Science, and Life Science are not isolated studies – they all work together to make life possible. Students will observe Museum specimens and artifacts and use science processes to explore ways in which these sciences explain how life on earth survives, thrives and changes. Get ready for some “aha” moments!

Examples of concepts that may be taught:

  • Adaptations of teeth and bones for survival in herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores of the past and present (organization and development of living things, diversity and evolution of living organisms)
  • Use of resources and energy transfer within ecosystems (Earth structures and Earth systems and patterns)
  • The impact of humans on the environment (Earth structures, science and society)
  • The impact of tools as a human adaptation (forces and changes in motion)

Time required: 30-minute program plus set-up and take-down
Serves: One classroom, up to 25 students
Cost: $75/presentation; up to 4 presentations per visit
