Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human?
Join our family reunion in this Smithsonian DiY Exhibition! Our human traits evolved over 6 million years as our ancestors struggled to survive during times of dramatic climate change. This exhibition examines the scientific evidence of our species’ origins and explores our human family tree, all while asking visitors to consider what it means to be human.
This free, print-on-demand exhibit toolkit includes graphic panels and additional resources. It can be adapted to a variety of venues, including community centers, libraries, coffee shops, schools, hospitals, transit hubs, museums, and science centers.
