Queensland Museum Network Presents: Unearthed - Dr Karl for Kids
Join Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and find out why it’s safer for a cat to fall from a 32-storey building than a 7-storey building, get the low-down on the Bermuda Triangle, and how come wombats poo out about 90 little cubes (yes, cubes) each day – and how Pterodactyls were not four-legged flying dinosaurs.
You’ll also get the chance to ask all your burning science questions.
This event is recommended for children 7 to 13 years.
