Curated by Evolution Challenges contributors Martin Weiss and Margaret Evans, this exhibit from the New York Hall of Science (which is currently traveling the U.S.) is designed for children ages 5 to 12 and their parents and teachers. The exhibit introduces visitors to the basics of evolution from the perspective of young Charlie, who is writing a report for school about his favorite bird, the kiwi. His friends think he's a bit weird to be so enamored of the kiwi, which doesn't even look like a real bird. One night, in a dream, Charlie and his kiwi friend travel in time to meet up with Charles Darwin and discover the kiwi's ancestors for himself.
This project explores the obstacles that we face when teaching and learning about evolution.
