Burke 101

Students Engaging Visitors

Burke 101 is a program that puts you, as a visitor, in touch with current exhibits, relevant topics, and Burke collections and research — all with University of Washington students as your interpreters. Each quarter undergraduate and graduate students learn content and public engagement methods from Burke Museum staff. They then present changing activities, hands-on collections, and other resources in the galleries, giving you the richest natural history and cultural heritage experience possible.
