200 years Gregor Mendel: lifting the mystery of inheritance

Why do plants and animals look the way they do? After a short guided tour through the NHM's exhibitons, a quiz show on Deck 50 introduces the students to the basic concepts of the theory of inheritance in a fun and entertaining way.

Until February 2025 we are able to offer 25 workshops free of charge. All events take place in the NHM Vienna.
