Biodegradable toy lets children be palaeontologists

‘Circular Species’ is a biodegradable toy woolly mammoth that teaches children about the carbon cycle, combining natural materials and augmented reality. The carbon cycle is the continual journey that atoms of carbon make between the Earth’s atmosphere and living organisms and back into the atmosphere again. Circular Species comes with a packet of seeds, a toy woolly mammoth and an app designed to teach the child about that journey. Dobal says understanding the carbon cycle is vital to grasp the planet’s natural systems and is the first step to understanding the impact human activities have on the climate.
