Last year I was contacted by a team of scientists and museum exhibit designers to help put together a show about evolution. The result is Exploring Evolution, which is now opening at a string of state science museums in the midwest. (The list of participating museums is here.) The exhibit may not have a laser light show or a 100-foot long robotic dinosaur, but it does offer a look at seven examples of how scientists study evolution, from HIV to walking whales. Cornelia Dean includes the exhibit in an article in the New York Times on evolution-themed museum displays.
