We are super-excited to announce that Chester Zoo will be exhibiting at The Big Bang North West 2017 with some STEM-sational activities!
You can become a conservation worker and discover how thermal imaging helps with animal care and when it comes to pregnancy, find the clue in their poo!
The clue’s in the poo! Discover the exciting world of endocrinology at the Chester Zoo stand, get hands on and find out how hormones can be measured to monitor pregnancy in endangered animals.
Feeling hot? There are lots of tropical animals at Chester Zoo that require heat and light. Take part in a demo that uses thermal imaging cameras and other equipment to show exactly where the heat is and how thermal imagery is used to help look after animals.
