Join Charles and Emma Darwin to explore evolution at its birthplace as you delve daringly into the mysteries of science. Ever wondered why giraffes have long necks? Why a penguin can’t fly? Why a monkey has a tail? Discover all this and more as you grab your lab coat and dust off your craft kits at Down House. Each workshop will take approximately 40 minutes and will involve storytelling and hands on activities of a Darwinian theme.
