OVERVIEW: Minibeasts have existed for around 550 million years and make up approximately 97% of creatures on Earth! 


In fact, the UK alone is home to 25,000 different species - these little creatures are quite a big deal. Let’s look at Minibeasts together!


During ZooLab’s workshop, children get a fun introduction to invertebrates and classification. They get to question, investigate and learn about scientific discovery.


This workshop answers all the big questions such as - What do Minibeasts have inside them? Are there any similarities between our bodies and theirs?
