Join us for a Saturday morning flick with a twist, as we probe how movies use, and often bend, everyday science into their plot lines! Join our LifeLab team in the cinema foyer for some fun games looking at animal diversity and how genetics is responsible for all the variation we see around us.

Hear about the 25 Genome project aiming to use DNA to help the conservation of some of the nation’s most beloved animals. Stop by before or after the film to learn a bit about the science behind the family favourite Zootropolis and turn the morning into a day you won’t soon forget!
