Students expand their understanding of biological adaptations by observing both skulls and live animals. They see up to three live animals from different groups, place the animals in their correct classes, and learn about specific adaptations each has developed. After observing the live animals, students engage in a hands-on activity in which they become scientists and examine particular skulls to determine how the animals may have adapted.

Fee: $375 for 1 session, $100 for additional same-day sessions. Travel fees may apply.
