Javier Marin, Harvard Museum of Natural History Educator

Animals develop special characteristics that help them survive in their environments. From keeping warm to staying hidden, animals solve problems every day. Have you ever thought about how we humans do the same?

Get ready for a lively night of fun, games, and surprises when Javier Marin transports you back inside the Harvard Museum of Natural History. He will broadcast from the galleries pointing out some of the ways animals adapt to challenges they face in the wild. Then, you will look through your own homes in a problem-solving scavenger hunt. Your family will work together as a team to find objects to share, answer trivia questions, and take part in other challenges. This interactive event is designed for children and adults to attend together and will be fun for all ages.

Advance Registration Required. Please note that registration closes 1 hour prior to the event start time.
