Your students will gain appreciation of the complexity of life in this fun school science workshop when your primary classroom becomes a hands on biology lab!

  • Check out our mini-beasts, are they male or female? 
  • Learn about life cycles and basic ecological relationships between plants and animals.
  • How do biologists track animals? What techniques do animals use to hide? 
  • What are the parts of flowers? Your primary students will investigate these plus much more!

Students were very excited. Loved too many aspects - couldn't decide which was the best part. Very hands-on - all children engaged all the time. Excellent.
