Workshop Summary

Investigate the processes of evolution through this hands-on workshop. The session starts with an examination of animal adaptations before considering how this helps to drive the processes of evolution. Pupils then use our collection of replica skulls to find out about the evolution of our own species.

This workshop can be complemented with a visit to the Fossil Stories gallery to look at the fossil evidence for evolution and the timescales over which it operates. You could also consider a trip to our Planetarium to see the 'Sea Monsters: a Prehistoric Adventure' show.
