A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS TREAT

ONCE YOU WERE A DINOSAUR SNACK

Just before you unwrap your presents, open up your past in this special Christmas show. Scientists have spent years puzzling over the history of humanity. Other scientists are curious about our mysterious oddities: why we yawn, what are goosebumps and hiccups, or what’s the point of sunbathing.   Lo! We find the answer to one is the answer to the other.

You are a box of mystery because of your secret history: because once upon a time you were a fish; then a mouse, then a monkey; and parts of you are still fish, mouse and monkey … Your story is full of adventures, a ripping yarn which science story-teller Richard Robinson will spin, along with demonstrations, videos, chat, games and tricks (you will learn how to waggle your ears!)

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY,    DECEMBER 18-19     10.00 am   ON ZOOM   £6 per screen

Full Zooming instructions will be given when you book. It is for families, so a parent or suchlike is expected to be there. The talk is for grown-ups as well as kids, grown-ups can help in explaining, and asking questions. (I hope there will be lots of questions – it’s the best bit!) The main story is 30 minutes. The whole session will be about 1 hour.

A SMASHING NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION

Are We Nearly Here Yet?

‘Are We Nearly Here Yet?’ is the true story of the nutty Universe, crazy planet Earth, chaotic evolution and unspeakable You!

Each week for eleven weeks we will pace our way through the story of you and the Universe, from the Big Bang, through the Earth’s emergence, the beginning of life, then milestones on the path of evolution to the present day. 

Somehow over the past 14 billion years You have dodged catastrophe after catastrophe – exploding stars, oceans of boiling acid, killer amoebas, hungry dinosaurs, pandemics (lots of them) – and emerged ruler of the Earth. Well done! This will be the story of how you did it.

EVERY SATURDAY AT 10.00 am    JANUARY  8 – MARCH 19     ON ZOOM     £13.82 PER SCREEN FOR ALL SHOWS*

*That’s £1 per billion years

The hour long sessions come with demonstrations, games, chat, jokes, questions and surprises based around each week’s theme.

The serious aim of the show is to provide an overview of everything, to be a sort of basic scaffolding on which we hang further knowledge as it arrives though our life.
