Museomics and Moore - 1:00 pm
Biological specimens are a treasure trove of information that is increasingly unlocked with emerging new technologies in genetics, chemistry and computer imaging. We will explore exciting new discoveries made by combining technology with museum specimens, including how next-generation DNA sequencing has founded the field of Museomics, the genetic study of museum specimens. See how collections-based research is helping us understand hidden effects of climate change, identify cures for human disease and more.
Hibernation Station - 3:00 pm
Where do animals go when it snows? How do they prepare for the long winter? Preschoolers through 1st graders will enjoy the hands-on demonstrations, activities, and a story all centered around animal adaptations for hibernation.
