DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins
OVERVIEW: ZooLab’s new climate workshop joins Z.E.T.; an environmental time machine that travels back through history and forward into the future looking at climate data.
Z.E.T. addresses topics such as fossil fuels, greenhouse gases, sea ice depletion, rainforest coverage and animal extinctions.
Comparing data from different eras allows students to form a direct comparison between human behaviour and climate change.
