New Program!
Inquiry Into Evolution
Grades 10-12 | 75 minutes. Uncovering the history of evolution is one of the most complex questions that researchers are facing today. In this program, your students will work in small groups to start to unravel the history of groups of organisms we see today, using an inquiry-based approach to learning. Students have the opportunity to explore the collections, asking questions and following their curiosity to help them better understand evolution. At the end of the program, students will have a completed research journal to take their notes back to the classroom.
About the Museum
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum strives to inspire an understanding of biodiversity, its origins, and importance to humans through collections-based research, education and outreach. As Vancouver’s natural history museum, we work to promote a greater sense of collective responsibility for the biodiversity of British Columbia, Canada, and the world. The unique combination of world-class research, paired with beautiful, compelling exhibits, strives to make the research conducted at UBC more accessible to the public.

Explore the university’s spectacular biological collections, with 20,000 square feet of exhibits showcasing over 500 permanent exhibits. Among our two million treasured specimens are a 26-metre-long blue whale skeleton suspended in the atrium, the third-largest fish collection in Canada, and myriad fossils, shells, insects, fungi, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and plants from around BC and across the world.
