5 Most Booked Workshops For Science Week




The top workshops for Science Week 2023 were:



Animal Explorer


This age-inclusive workshop is a favourite within schools, clubs and museums. It's an informal session that introduces your group to a menagerie of mammals, insects, amphibians and arachnids. Do you think you will be brave enough to meet them all?


How slimy is a snail? Are tarantulas fluffy? Do snakes have bones? Get up-close and hands-on with our unique Animal Explorer workshop. This fun and interactive workshop is the perfect example of why ZooLab is WILD about animals.





Rainforest Discovery


Discover the Rainforest from the comfort of your classroom! Let ZooLab’s intrepid Ranger take your pupils on an exciting journey through this important ecosystem.


Learn about the layers of the rainforest while getting hands-on with our animal team members. Discover everything you ever wanted to know about life in the steamy tropics and why they are coming under threat.





Habitats


What is a habitat? What types of habitat are there? Why do habitats matter? So many questions answered!

​ZooLab’s Habitat workshop introduces pupils to different habitats from around the world: including tropical rainforests, deserts, polar regions and oceans. This hands-on workshop looks at three great survivors; rats, cockroaches and humans and considers how and why they have survived.






Biomimetics and Amazing Adaptions


This fascinating session will look at a section of complex behaviours from the animal world including Batesian mimicry, parthenogenesis and camouflage!

What can humans learn from these marvels? Find out how nature-inspired solutions are influencing scientific, medical and engineering discovery.





Symbiosis


​Nature can be downright bizarre! Filled with real-world examples, this workshop focuses on the different ways that animals interact with one and other.

Pupils will investigate mutualistic, commensalistic and parasitic relationship - from crocodiles and teeth cleaning plover birds, to mind-controlled ants and malaria.
