Autumn 2 IPC PROJECT : Out of Africa

What's the big idea?

First, there was a big bang! 

Then life began on Earth 3.8 billion years ago. But when did humans arrive and where did we come from? If we can find out the answer to these questions perhaps we can figure out where we are heading in the future...

Entry Point: Tuesday 30thOctober 2018 – Dress as a futuristic human.

Exit Point: Guess who? Family Inheritance Game. Date TBC
