Explore the power of poisons in the natural world and how humans have harnessed this power for thousands of years. In this weeklong camp, students will visit the Museum’s new temporary exhibition, The Power of Poison, and go behind the scenes to learn all about poisons. Discover where they exist in nature, how different species use poisons, toxins, and venom to help them survive, how cultures all over the world have used poisons, and how they are being transformed into medicine.
