Human Impacts On The Environment
Never before has environmental learning been so important and this workshop was created to feed into this thirst for knowledge and continue inspiring change.
In this workshop we explore the combination of human activities that has led to the climate crisis - from greenhouse gases to the negative effects of tourism. We also discover what we can do to reverse some of the damage caused.
The rainforest is a cornicopia of resources. It supplies us with a plethora of day to day items that we take for granted - things including wood, medicine and food - but at what price? This hands-on workshop delves into life in the rainforest and looks at how we’re depleating these resources. Can we reverse this man-made effect through recycling and sustainability? Pupils learn how making a few small changes to our lives, we can help ensure the preservation of this fascinating habitat for years to come.
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.
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.
Your ZooLab presenter takes you on an exciting journey through the rainforest, letting you get hands-on with real rainforest animals! Learn all about the different rainforest layers that these animals live in, who and what they eat and how they’re coming under threat. Discover everything you ever wanted to know about life in the steamy tropics.
