Meet an Evolutionary Biologist and find out how individuals impress their mates! (Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)

By Request

Ever wonder why frogs sing? Why birds are colourful? Or “wow look at those cool dance moves”? Find out how individuals impress their mates


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Do you get butterflies in your stomach when you see a person that you like? But why do you like them?

Students will work with Anastasia Shavrova, an evolutionary biologist who specialized in mating and reproduction, to help them understand the why, what, and how of sexual selection: Why animals choose the partners that they do, what can individuals do to impress their mate, and how can choices in partners lead to such elaborate features!

In this interactive work shop, students will explore how evolution works in real-time through playing  and seeing how they can shape different looking monsters just by listening to what their mate likes.

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to learn, evolve, and have fun!
