Family Camp: Life and Evolution

Please call the Programs Department at 416.586.5797 to be placed on the waiting list.
From trilobites, glyptodonts, and giant squids to meat-eating plants, flying dinosaurs, and the very story of homo sapiens, bizarre creatures have always existed! Go on an exclusive tour of our natural history exhibits and get up close with the diversity of life we have on display. Then examine fossils, skins and skeletons rarely seen from our collections. Finally, your talented ROM Educator will lead you through an art project that brings your afternoon together as you study evolution’s strangest solutions to life!
Meet the Instructor!
Meet instructor Daniel Kwan!
  • Daniel Kwan (M.Sc.) is currently a second year doctoral student under the supervision of Dr. Gary Crawford and Dr. David Smith. The primary focus of his research is the relationship between the early subsistence practices and pottery technology of the Shangshan culture (11,400 - 8600 BP) in Zhejiang Province, China. He is a member of an international research team focusing on the Shangshan and the origins of rice agriculture in the lower Yangtze Valley.

    In addition to his studies, Daniel is a Canadian Weblog nominated blogger and Toronto-based educator – working as both a Studio Instructor and Gallery Facilitator at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM).
