Today’s shows:

11.00am and 2.30pm  Same but different

Take the chance to be a part of a 5-billion-year-old story and discover why we all look a bit the same – but different! Learn about Charles Darwin’s famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Help us identify the similarities and differences between species and find out how species adapt to different environments!

Make something a little different to take home with you!

12.30pm Hungry Finches

Find out about Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection and investigate how studying Finches on the Galapagos Islands helped him to come to his conclusions by playing this fun game

4.00pm Make your own bird feeder

A look at some familiar birds and how they have evolved so differently before learning more about why it’s important to support our garden birds with good, nutritious food in the coming winter.
