Combine a facilitated meet-the-scientist session with a behind-the-scenes tour to create an inspiring day for your students.
These sessions complement all AS and A-Level biology courses:
- A behind-the-scenes tour of the spirit collection and its 22 million specimens.
- A facilitated group discussion with a Museum scientist who will discuss their research and then open the floor to questions to get students thinking about how science works.
- Free time to explore the Museum, including the Darwin Centre's Cocoon, which shows how our scientists use the collections to help understand the natural world and protect biodiversity.
Session times and duration
The Spirit Collection Tours run between 10.30 and 13.00 and last for 30 minutes. When you book, the team will arrange a time for your tour and reserve a spot for lunch in the picnic area.
The discussion with our scientist starts at 13.30 and runs for 45 minutes.
Students can explore the rest of the Museum during the free time between these sessions.
