We were Making Monsters last month
Animals have adapted to a whole variety of environments on Earth. From deep oceans and high mountains to dry deserts and grassy plains. But what might animals look like on an alien world with different ecosystems and environments? Would these animals adapt and evolve like animals here on Earth? Join us as we have a play with the Creature Creator from the 2008 video game Spore from Maxis Studios. We’ll explore evolution and adaptation and what environments might look like on far-away worlds with Museum experts. See some of our ideas and creations take shape in Creature Creator and explore the real science behind the diversity of life.
The Museum is closed but our work continues
As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities.
So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
