What to know before you visit
Have you ever marveled over a newborn child? We stand in awe at the detail of their tiny features, fingers, and toes. As we consider the miracle of life, we may ask, “When does life begin?”
Join Dr. David Menton in this interactive workshop as he explains the development of an infant from the embryo to birth. Explore the progressive sequence beginning with ovulation, the movement of the egg in the oviduct, fertilization, implantation, development of the placenta, and finally the birth process itself. Discover what the embryological development of the human body tells us about our Creator.
You will walk away with the words of the psalmist, “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well” (Psalm 139:14).
Through his years of teaching, Dr. Menton gained many anecdotal tidbits and stories and loves sharing his knowledge with Creation Museum guests. This workshop is recommended for 12 years old and up, but younger budding scientists will be able to learn a lot too.
Private workshops can be booked for groups (subject to availability). The minimum group size is 35 and the maximum is 90. To book your private event, please email our programs team or call 888-582-4253 ext. 229.
Dr. David Menton: Dr. Menton holds a PhD from Brown University and served as a professor at Washington University for 34 years. He retired as an associate professor emeritus and now serves with Answers in Genesis.
