ResultsCan modern technology uncover the secrets of evolution? Provided by Futurum Careers Classroom activity, Subject knowledge booster Description:
A mysterious group of fossils called the Elgin Reptiles has been puzzling scientists for centuries. Existing only as cavities hidden within rocks, these fossils could help scientists unravel the mysteries of evolution. Thanks to modern technologies, Dr Davide Foffa, a research associate at National Museums Scotland, and his colleagues have examined these fossils using digital technologies for the first time, resulting in some exciting new discoveries.
This brochure introduces Davide’s work, offers an insight into careers in palaeontology, contains an interview with Davide and includes an activity sheet that challenges students to investigate mass extinction events.
