A Day at the Biosphere Museum

Students had the opportunity to explore the biodiversity exhibited at the Biosphere Museum and listen to fundamental biological concepts and processes from academics and researchers. The specially designed program by Hacettepe University Biological Diversity Research and Application Center attracted great interest. Students, in groups, closely examined biodiversity and received information about Anatolia's rich ecosystem. The museum showcases many examples from the universe's formation, the earth's geological structure, and fossils, microorganisms, plants, fungi, and animals.
