BioMedia Meltdown Competition

Are you a KS3 teacher in North West London? Then join us for the BioMedia Meltdown Competition, back for its third year! Last year we had hundreds of fantastic entries. Hear what some of the teachers and students had to say. 

Accessible to KS3 students of all abilities and interests, why not be a part of The Linnean Society of London's BioMedia Meltdown Competition and ask your students to produce a piece of creative media looking at Ecosystems and/or Evolution? The competition gives students the opportunity to show off their understanding of science using their creative skills, and win some amazing prizes. 

Entries will be accepted in a wide variety of media (including videos, blogs, poems, short stories, photos, sculptures, songs and paintings) and you could explore a range of scientific ideas such as food webs, human food security, extinction, natural selection, biodiversity or gene banks.

All winners, friends and family will be invited to celebrate their work at The Linnean Society of London, where they will receive their prizes. Schools may also independently submit evidence of their competition entries directly to the CREST Bronze award scheme. 

This KS3 competition for students will run in the boroughs of: Barnet, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea and the Cities of London and Westminster and is funded by John Lyon's Charity.
