Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! 
As you start preparing for the new school year, let the Beaty Biodiversity Museum help. We've spent our summer adding new resources to our website, updating our online availability calendar, and refining our booking request form. All of our school programs provide educational opportunities for Science and Arts programs from Kindergarten to High School and beyond. Visit our website for programs designed for Elementary, Secondary and Post-Secondary classes.

New Outreach Kit: Forest 
Last school year saw the successful launch of our Inquiry and Whale Flipper X-Ray Beaty Boxes, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to grow this program. The Forest Beaty Box highlights the Pacific coastal temperate rainforest, with a focus on ecological connections.
Beaty Boxes are a great option if you're unable to bring the entire class out to the museum on a field trip. They are loaned out for 14-day periods, and you can pick them up whenever the museum is open. Learn more about the Beaty Box program.

RSVP to this eventAdmission is free for educators.
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.
