Today’s shows:

11.30am Same but Different

Meet Darwin and his family – why do they look alike? And how come we all look a bit the same – but different? Look into his famous voyage on The Beagle and how that helped him formulate his theory of evolution. Packed full of fun games and demos, this show gives you a chance to be a part of a 5 billion year old story!

2.30pm  Leaves and Seeds

Find out how and why leaves change colour in Autumn, and discover some of the ways the plants spread their seeds in this interactive show.

Make something a little different with our activities today!
