June 4 – September 11, 2016
The Nature of Things lets visitors explore the secret lives of honey bees, and the cool features and functions of insects. Educational exhibits will examine the fascinating behaviors of salamanders, and the amazing design of mammal teeth. Hands-on activity stations, bright interpretive signs, real specimens and video screens engage visitors of all ages as they learn about the natural world around us! What is beeswax and why is pollination important? What is a salamander and how is an amphibian different from a reptile? What are the life stages of a butterfly and what are some insect behaviors? What can a scientist learn from a skull and what are the feeding behaviors of mammals? The exhibition was developed by Purdue University.
