This exciting day aims to inspire students about working in science and to provide real examples of biology in use.
Students meet museum scientists and find out about their work, participate in a Taxonomy workshop, and witness the scale of our collections on a tour of the Darwin Centre, our Zoology research and storage facility.
The days provide enrichment for all AS and A-level Biology courses. Our scientists are briefed on the Edexcel Visit Report coursework.
