Winston-Salem explores evolution with museum exhibit

August 12, 2018 by  

Exhibit: Human Evolution: Hot Topics in Paleoanthropology, a student-curated exhibition that features includes fossil models and other images to educate the public about human evolution, is now on show in Winston-Salem.

However, the emphasis is not on what is already known about evolution, but on what is still being investigated. Evolutionists are still trying to figure out how ancient homo sapiens lived, such as how they were able to climb, gave birth, and created tools.

The exhibit is taking place at the Museum of Anthropology, Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. The Museum’s main mission is to help promote awareness of international cultures. It does so by collecting, protecting, and exhibiting archaeological evidence.

The museum has three separate education options available for teachers, families, and the Wake Forest Staff. For families, there are classes that have craft projects. For kids, there are two types of scavenger hunts – the I Spy for elementary-aged kids and the MOA for kids at the middle school level and beyond. For K-12 teachers, there are curriculum-based programs that focus on specific cultures and outreach kits to assist with their lessons in a hands-on way, all of which makes for an event likely to use local printing shops and stationery printing services.

The exhibit is scheduled to be displayed from August 7 until December 7. Admission is free and donations are optional. The museum is open to the public between Tuesday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm.
