Variation and Survival In Class

Play a bird beak survival game to understand how variation influences evolution, and create colorful leaf prints to compare inherited and environmental traits. Then, investigate the inherited traits of a live animal ambassador.

This program is a Specialty Program because it includes an art and live animal element. Please see our Specialty Pricing for more details.

Variation and Survival is a part of a two-part program series with 1x in-class program and 1x field trip program. You may choose to book only the in-class or field trip program, but we recommend booking both for deeper engagement.
