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.


Eye on Evolution

Have you ever wondered how our eyes actually see? This hands-on workshop explores the way we think human eyes have evolved.

Follow the likely stages of the evolution of the human eye while making a pinhole viewer to highlight the crucial steps – from how we tell light from dark to focusing with a lens.

This is an illuminating introduction to the anatomy of the eye will highlight the different types of eyes we see in animals today.
