Remember, we can bring our activities to your school – or you can bring your class to our centre in Cambridge.

Schools Shows and Workshops




Evolution involves a lot of randomness, but how can that change a population?

In this workshop, we will explore the concepts of evolution and variation. Have a look at cats and kittens and the variations that may be inherited, and play a board game that examines how random changes occur.


Balance of Biodiversity

How balanced are the groups of living things around us? This show explores the way living things interact with each other in a balanced ecosystem.

Investigate how humans organise the complex world of living things and how food webs keep everything in balance. Find out about the important roles of the ecosystem superheroes, such as pollinators, and what we can do to support them.


On the Road

Ever thought about the ground under your feet? Get on the road for this interactive workshop about making roads, using real-life examples from the A14 along the way.

In this three-part hands on-workshop, you’ll go on an inspiring journey to learn all about road building. Play the role of an engineer, a materials scientist and an environmental scientist to probe the layers of materials that make up a road. Then, working in teams, explore how to minimise the environmental impact of road building – learning practical skills including measuring, weighing and engineering as you go.

Want to recycle more? Look to nature to find out how it’s done.

We look at inspiring examples from nature to illustrate why recycling is so important for our environment. Meet Horatio the Hermit Crab, who makes his home in recycled shells, and watch a cloud form in a bottle to illustrate how the water cycle works.

This inspirational workshop introduces the concepts of water cycle, carbon cycle and recycling.
