Q?rius is an interactive learning space that brings the unique assets of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History – the science, researchers, and collections – out from behind the scenes. In Q?rius, students enter into the role of our scientists, using high-powered microscopes and other scientific instruments to explore over 6,000 natural history objects from our collections.
