The Biomedia Meltdown Competition

Are you a KS3 teacher in London? Then join us for the BioMedia Meltdown Competition, back for its fourth year!

Accessible to KS3 students of all abilities and interests, why not be a part of the BioMedia Meltdown Competition and ask your students to produce a piece of creative media linked to natural history? 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, infographics, street art, mixed media, dance, poetry, short stories, photography, sculptures, songs and paintings etc.) and you could explore a range of scientific ideas such as food webs, human food security, extinction, natural selection, biodiversity or gene banks. We love anything with a link to Natural History!

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.

We have two brand new creative science workshops that we can deliver for free at your school or community group. Contact elisa@linnean.org for more information and to book.
