The Living Lab allows people of all ages to explore the natural sciences including biology, ecology and geology and invites a better understanding of The Heard's most valuable asset—the Heard Wildlife Sanctuary. The section of the museum is complete with specimens to manipulate, measure and observe. Scientific questions are also presented in a fun and interactive fashion. The Living Lab features three dioramas, which provide a glimpse into the major ecosystems found at The Heard. Seasonal features include a working observation bee hive and native fish.
