Film Festival – Screening and talk: Jurassic World

For the first time, the Wales Gene Park is taking part in the Into Film festival for schools and young people across the UK!

Schools are invited to join us for a screening Jurassic World (certificate 12A) on Friday 6th November, 10:00 – 13:30, in Lecture Theatre 1, Main Hospital Building, University Hospital of Wales, Heath Park Campus, Cardiff. The event is aimed at pupils in Years 8 & 9, but if your school would like to bring pupils from a different year group please contact non.stevens@intofilm.org to discuss further.

Following the screening, we are delighted to be joined by scientist, wildlife expert and TV and radio broadcaster Dr Rhys Jones from Cardiff University! His BBC television career includes ‘Rhys to the Rescue’, Chris Packham’s ‘Nature’s Calendar’ and Sir David Attenborough’s ‘Saving Planet Earth’, and he can currently be seen on our TV screens presenting the third series of Rhys Jones’s Wildlife Patrol on BBC One.

Rhys will lead an interactive session with the students, discussing the topics covered in the film and asking the question Just because it might be possible to genetically engineer a dinosaur, should we do it? Join us for what promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking day!
