From understanding the importance of carbon in our environment to unearthing fossils buried deep beneath our feet; from travelling back in time to the Ice Age to empathizing the plight of the animals on the brink of extinction. Come back each week to explore a rotation of different paleoecological activities!

Activity 1: Element of Life

Carbon is present in the air that we breathe, the fuel that powers our world and even on everyday objects we wear and use. But did you know that carbon actually forms the basis of all known life on Earth? Learn more about the pivotal role and critical importance of the Element of Life.

Activity 2: Fossils Rock!

Did you know? Contrary to popular belief, fossils are not the bones of prehistoric animals or leaves from prehistoric plants. Discover what fossils are really made off and try your hand at fossil etching in Fossils Rock!

Activity 3: The Great Freeze

Climate change has been on-going since the Earth formed 4.6 billion years ago. Learn more about the time when the Earth was extremely colder. What did animals look like and how did they survive? Find out in this demo-filled experience called The Great Freeze!

Activity 4: Warning, (en)Danger!

Everyone knows that dinosaurs no longer roam the earth. But apart from the giant beasts, many other animals are quietly battling extinction as you read this. Find out what these animals are and get to know several success stories of conservation efforts in Warning, (en)Danger!
