Rochdale’s Obsolete Animal Research Laboratory (ROAR Lab), is now open and looking for new recruits!! Do you have a curious mind and a good sense of observation? Do you have a keen interest in extinct and unusual organisms? Do you know your Diplodocus from your Brachiosaurus? Then we need you. Join our training programme taking place over the school holidays in 2020.

Help to develop new technologies while building miniature domes, a ‘solar powered’ hat and even a useable solar oven. You may even visit a Rochdale of the future.

Each session is 90 minutes long.
