Discover some of the most important ideas in the theory of evolution with TV’s Steve Backshall and Professor Alice Roberts in a treasure hunt-style trail around the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Sensing Evolution presents the Museum of Natural History in a new way, using the gallery displays to unlock crucial ideas about evolution: How does life adapt, how does it change, and how did we get to be here at all?

Designed to be used during a visit to the Museum, the Sensing Evolution app uses iBeacon technology to unlock videos as you approach the displays on the trail.

Inside the Sensing Evolution app:

- Two levels of trail: Discover, presented by Steve Backshall, for children aged 8+ and families; and Investigate, presented by Professor Alice Roberts, for teenagers and adults.
- Locate displays in the Museum to introduce some key ideas in the theory of evolution, including natural selection, sexual selection, heredity and genetic variation, fossil evidence, Charles Darwin and more.
- Designed for school groups and general visitors, with links to National Curriculum themes on Evolution (schools can book an education session and borrow the Museum’s iPads).
- Multi-choice questions pick up important ideas in the videos.
