Work as a paleoanthropologist to examine 6 hominin skulls and real-life models to determine patterns of evolutionary development.

Bring alive human evolution with a hands-on investigation into the driving forces of evolution. Students stand among life-sized hominin models. They touch, measure and analyse the skulls to gain a deeper understanding of patterns emerging in our evolutionary lineage. All 6 hominin species are de-identified as students work to place them in the correct evolutionary order and use evidence to support their placement. In doing so, we discuss the changing theories about human evolution and discuss important adaptations of each species.
