About this event
The Earth is an intimately connected multisphere of chemistry, biology, air and water, but the relationship between these realms is always changing. Join The Rock Showman & Flossy in an interactive performance lecture that walks us through the forests of 300 million years ago, and understand why too much of a good thing turned out to be quite bad. Twice. Meet the plants and animals of the Carboniferous period and reflect upon their importance to our modern world and get hands-on with treasures of the earth, as you learn how details within rocks tell scientists incredible stories.
