Life Science with Monty L. Bean

Edwin Powell Hubble reminds us that man, "equipped with his five senses, . . . explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science." Nomen Global students had a chance to be real scientists this week at the Bean Life Science Museum. We used our senses of touch, sight, and sound to explore animals from all over the world. 

The Monty L. Bean Life Science Museum is located at Brigham Young University and houses hundreds of different species of plants and animals. Right now, Into Africa: Exploring Nature's Interactions is the new exhibit that shows visitors about Africa's different ecosystems, or environments in which plants and animals coexist.

Once we finished our museum scavenger hunt, we followed a guide to the auditorium for a private presentation on ecosystems. We learned about the four ecosystems in the world: grasslands, forest, desert, and wetlands. We even got to meet a few of the animals that originate from these ecosystems. Monty is a ball python who lives in the rain forest and Otis is a tortoise who lives in the grasslands.
