Biologist’s Apprentice

Sunday, June 2, 2019
3:30 pm - 4:45 pm

Did you know that a maple tree and a tuna are related? If you go back far enough, all living things have a common ancestor. To keep track of the two million known species, scientists came up with a system of classification, known as taxonomy. Join biologist Colleen Evans, Staten Island Museum’s Director of Natural Science, to examine insect samples, create a species family tree, and learn how scientists use these methods to analyze ecosystems and stop the spread of disease.

A student-only program for kids currently enrolled in grades 5-8. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this event.
