How to tell the weather in the Ice Age

Developed and presented by the James Cook University team and led by Professor Michael Bird, How to tell the Weather in the Ice Age was CABAH’s first Street Science experience since the festival’s inception. The team brought together a number of coring activities, displays, and information that transported participants back through time to learn about Australia’s deep time history and walk away with a deeper understanding of our research and current environmental issues, including climate change.

The two-day event was a resounding success with the CABAH tent recording 4000 visitors.  Not bad for a 5m2 marquee!
