This past week the Bean Museum participated in the inaugural BYU Museum Camp with the intent of educating teenagers on the importance of museums and the critical role they play in education. Campers had the exciting opportunity to see life behind the scenes of the museum by touring exclusive research facilities and collections, talking to museum curators and researchers, and participating in a live animal show.
Museums play a crucial role in research, curation, and education. The Bean Museum strives to educate the public on both the facts and the importance of the life sciences. Our education programs, camps, and exhibits all function to make science fun and excite everyone to learn about and protect our planet.
