If you're a teacher, community organiser or library coordinator working with young people aged 8-14, the BioMedia Meltdown Competition is an amazing opportunity to offer FREE integrated art/science workshops to your learning community. Now in its fifth year, our cutting edge STEAM workshops bring natural history to life through cross-curricular learning, using the latest technology alongside traditional and contemporary art media and techniques. The resulting work is entered into our annual competition, with finalists' work displayed in our prestigious spring exhibition, and winners taking home some amazing prizes!

In addition to booked workshops, individual entries are accepted, and additional prizes are presented to our most engaged teaching partners, as well as schools with the most finalists. Entries will be accepted in a wide variety of media and may cover a wide range of concepts relating to life science. We love anything that shows off young artists' amazing creativity with a link to natural history.

We also have several brand new creative science workshops that we can deliver for free at your school or community group. Contact for more information and to book. Deadline for submissions is February 1st 2020. Find more specifics and terms and conditions on entry here.

This project is proud to be working in partnership with schools and settings on their Artsmark Award journey.
