"This was one of the days when I actually wished OFSTED could be present to witness the awe and wonder." - St Michaels Primary School.

“What a fantastic day the children had working with you and your fossils. It was one of the best workshops we have ever had in school. You left quite an impression." - Warwick School

Handle 3,500 real fossils! Apply Darwin's ideas about evolution and adaptation to a collection of real mammal bones and teeth! Search one-million-year-old amber for signs of stone-age minibeasts! A workshop like no other, picked up by Edinburgh Science Festival and Cheltenham Science Festival and even toured around theatres in 2016, as part of LabLive.
