Discover some of the most important ideas in the theory of evolution with TV’s Steve Backshall and Professor Alice Roberts in a treasure hunt-style trail around Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
Sensing Evolution presents the Museum in a new way, using the gallery displays to unlock crucial ideas about evolution: how does life adapt, how does it change, and how did we get to be here at all?
Inside the Sensing Evolution app you will find:
Two levels of trail: Discover, presented by Steve Backshall, for children aged 8+ and families; and Investigate, presented by Professor Alice Roberts, for teenagers and adults
Display-related content introducing some key ideas in the theory of evolution, including natural selection, sexual selection, heredity and genetic variation, fossil evidence, and more
Information designed for school groups and general visitors, with links to national curriculum themes on evolution (schools can book an education session and borrow the Museum’s iPads)
Multiple choice questions pick up important ideas in the videos
If you want to use the app outside the Museum, unlock codes are available for download here.
