The Museum offers learning opportunities at all levels, from pre-school children experiencing the wonder of the world around them for the first time, to PhD students of taxonomy.

Investigate, our science education resource in the Clore Education Centre, encourages adults and children to engage directly with objects, while on our website we provide entertaining learning opportunities such as Exploring Biodiversity, Walking with Woodlice and Darwin Centre Live webcasts.

During the year we delivered a full schedule of study tours and training in the natural sciences for life-long learners. The popular Summer Programme provided workshops, day classes, courses, coach tours and days out for adults keen to continue their education. Once again we offered the Sharing our Skills courses for museum professionals and the continuing professional development programme for teachers. For family audiences, our Ideas & Evidence programme included workshops and other family learning events designed to introduce adults and children to scientific processes.
