NOVA’s Evolution Lab
Discover how you are connected to everything that’s alive and everything that has ever lived.
NOVA’s Evolution Lab was created to help you explore how you are related to all species and understand the amazing mechanism behind it. The game provides an overview of the evidence for evolution while addressing misconceptions and highlighting case studies about evolution.
Start by building your own phylogenetic trees by analyzing the traits and DNA that characterize selected species. Navigate puzzles, animated videos, and background information to lead you through levels that start out simple and build in complexity. Once you’ve learned how to create trees that capture the evolutionary relationships among a handful of species, you’ll be ready to enter free-play mode to conduct your own investigations in NOVA’s Evolution Lab’s virtual tree of life.
Come explore the tree of life and get a front row seat to what some have called the greatest show on Earth: Evolution.
