Extraordinary Evolution

Tags:

1 hour | Max. 40 Students | Year 10-12

Taking evolution back to the basics of DNA -we’ll look at how DNA programmes our bodies and what happens when mistakes, known as mutations, occur. We’ll find out how these mutations drive evolution and allow animals to become better adapted to their habitats with some classic examples and interactive activities. Students will get the chance to dig into our own past and look at our ancestors by studying their fossilised skulls.
