Using film footage from the BBC’s Planet Dinosaur, the interactive show pits the knowledge of children against their parents.

Mr Garrod, who was born and raised in Great Yarmouth, has presented television shows including Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur, with David Attenborough, and Secrets of Bones.

The science festival, which this year includes more than 125 events, continues until Sunday, October 29.
