"Evolutionarium: The Evolution Aquarium" is Genome BC’s new inquiry-based card game, designed to fit with the content and competencies of the Grade 10-12 curriculum. The game challenges students to work in teams to select mutations that offer their organism the best chance of survival in a series of different environments. Through this hands-on process, students learn that evolutionary change—and ultimately survival or extinction—happens through a combination of random mutation and changing environmental circumstances.
