Short videos are combined with live-discussion and Q&A, including a close up virtual inspection of fossils and skulls from the handling collection!

Hot (Climate) Facts!
Then meet Sarah Clear from the Rediscovery Centre’s education team as she shows the connections between the past and the present! Watch a brand new video showcasing science experiments to explain how CO2 causes global warming, discover how the ice ages of the past and global warming now affects our oceans, and see the great experiments you can do at home or at school! Join Sarah in a live-discussion and Q&A to answer your puzzling questions and explore what we can do in our lives to help combat climate change.
