Cost: FREE.
Booking: yes. Please use the links below to book.
Facilities: parking, wheelchair accessible, toilets for disabled visitors.

See how some animals can even change colour and body temperature; explore what other animals and human beings need to do to cope with widely different temperatures and types of environment. Feel and touch evolutionary changes and adaptations at first hand. ZooLab's own animals, from bearded dragons to tarantulas, hissing cockroaches and frogs provide some hands-on evolutionary clues.

It's all part of a voyage of discovery into how animal senses have adapted and how animal characteristics have developed over evolutionary time.

The workshop combines imagination and working scientifically to uncover the big ideas of science and stimulate keen interest in young minds.
