KS 2, 3; Second Stage, Third Stage.
Ages 7 - 14
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.
Key Workshop Objectives:
To gain an awareness and understanding of the climate crisis.
To discover the link between human behaviour and climate change.
Recognise that environments can change and this can pose problems to living things.
Understand that we all have a social responsibility to make changes.

Why learn about the climate?
Climate change is generally defined as a significant variation of average weather conditions such as conditions becoming warmer, wetter, or drier over several decades or more. It’s these longer-term trends that differentiates climate change from natural weather variability.
This workshop provides a comprehensive look at the long-term changes in the earth’s atmosphere, oceans, land surfaces, and cryosphere (frozen water systems).
Discover what caused these changes and what lessons can we learn from the past and apply to the future to help reverse the climate change process.
