Roots of Knowledge engages visitors in a dynamic educational experience. Through guided docent tours, self-guided K-12 tours, faculty lectures, and scavenger hunts, we hope to introduce patrons to new modes of understanding, ignite curiosity, inspire close looking, and foster self-reflection.


Visitors are welcome to schedule a 60-minute guided tour with a trained docent, during which they will be given a broad overview of Roots of Knowledge as well as detailed information about each of the installation's panels. Docent-guided tours aim to engage visitors in lively conversations about science, literature, philosophy, religion, and world cultures throughout history. Please schedule your tour here.



Groups participating in the self-guided tour will receive an introduction to Roots of Knowledge, 60-minutes of self-directed gallery time, and themed scavenger hunts to use at their leisure. 

    • Available for K-12 groups of up to 90 students.

Each semester, faculty from departments across UVU's campus are invited to present their research as it pertains to the Roots of Knowledge installation. The Speaker Series highlights the rich educational content within Roots of Knowledge while showcasing UVU faculty from all disciplines as they share their knowledge and passion for learning. You can find more information about our Speaker Series—including our current roster of presenters—on the Events page.


Roots of Knowledge has a diverse collection of themed scavenger hunt for all ages that encourage visitors to look closely and think deeply about the stories and concepts within the installation. These scavenger hunts are rooted in Utah State Core Standards and available online and in the gallery for use by children, families, and anyone wanting a hands-on experience with the installation. All online scavenger hunts can be found here.
