October Online Programs from the Museum
our most popular programs return online this October, with
fascinating topics from how humans relate to climate change to
a family-friendly journey with wild horses. Join us online from
anywhere, to learn and discover with Museum staff and curators.
How can we better understand the relationship
between humans and their environment in a time of rapid
climate change? Join archaeologist Kristina
Douglass as she presents her research on human
culture, subsistence strategies, and mobility in the
face of climate change. Learn about the dynamic
relationship between human communities and their
environment over time, and a picture for the path human
culture might take in the future.
Blast off into outer space with Museum
astrophysicists Jackie Faherty and Daniella
Bardalez Gagliuffi to discover why Earth’s tilt is
the reason for our seasons, what seasons on our
neighboring planets are like, and why. Science teacher
and Museum MAT alum Deion Desir pilots our
journey in OpenSpace, taking viewers above Earth’s
atmosphere and across our solar system.
Join Museum Senior Curator Ross MacPhee
and author Manda Kailmian to explore the world of
North American wild horses. From the evolution of the
modern horse (Equus caballus) to the ways in
which this species has become a companion and partner
throughout the ages, this family-friendly program sheds
light on the hurdles surrounding rewilding horses and
includes a special preview of Cello Comes Home,
a children's book dedicated to the history and future
of this species in North America.
What stars have the perfect stadium
seating vantage point in the galaxy to find and study
Earth? Join Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty
