From Jungle to Lab: The Study of Life's Complexities
This interactive Exploratorium exhibition delves behind the scenes of Las Cuevas, a field research station in Belize that was founded by the Natural History Museum in London. You can click through different people's role within the station, from a biologist to a botanist to a researcher, and check out what exactly they contribute, as well as either listen in or watch a video of their experiences. You can also learn about the many tools they use to do their research, like DNA analysis and a scanning electron microscope. Be sure to take a look at the Ideas section, which offers a ton of information about basic biology and how it relates to the Belize environment. You can even tag along with the professionals to see and listen to their discoveries and view live webcasts from Belize and London.
