There are over two million species on this planet - but how do we go about identifying and grouping them? Join us in this interactive science show as your students classify themselves to find where humans sit in the tree of life.
Students will discover the vast diversity of life on this planet, find out about how scientists group living things, and see how they as humans are related to all life on Earth.
They will also get the chance to do the job of scientists by identifying a mystery specimen - that's if they survive a close encounter with a giant squid.
