BMM Boxes (free!)

Borrow a BMM Box to help you create some winning entries


The much loved BioMedia loan kits are being revamped! We've listened to feedback from students and teachers and are in the process of streamlining the resources within them - so that each box will focus on a different type of creative media. The new BMM Boxes will be ideal for a science or art club to use to create entries for the competition.

They'll include easy to follow activities in the new Design Diary, Research Lowdown Pages containing information about the work of different biologists for students to explore and Art Cards for further creative inspiration. The boxes will be filled with all the creative media and art supplies you'll need to produce some fantastic entries. We'll also provide a handy teachers guide with further tips and ideas to help your students create some winning entries!

These resources are perfect for a STEM club or Art and Design club. Please note that we have a limited number of boxes, but we will do our best to accommodate you. So don’t delay: book a BMM Box today, email

BioMedia Meltdown Loan Kit 2016- 2017
The BioMedia Loan Kits 2016-2017

Check out our Researcher Lowdowns:

Behavioural scientist: Rebecca Lewis

My main research interests are in animal behaviour, management and conservation, particularly of birds and primates

Biochemist, ecologist: MJC Crabbe

His main research interests are how living things adapt and evolve in extreme environments

Biocomputing: Richard Mayne

My main research interests are studying unicellular living things. I try to find out how clever they are by using measurement that we would usually use to describe computers.

Entomologist: Henry Disney

I have a lifelong interest in Diptera (flies, midges and gnats), especially their interactions with other living things. I was formerly a medical entomologist in Belize and Cameroon - focusing on insects that affect human health.

Evolutionary ecologist: Anne Charmantier

My topics of interests in research include: local adaptations at small scales, responses to climate change and evolutionary importance of extreme climate events.

Marine biologist, molecular biologist, plankton ecologist: Will Goodall-Copestake

My favourite groups to study are zooplankton known as salps and pyrosomes. We look at their shapes and their DNA to identify them. The most fun discovery for me was discovering a potential new species of salp!

Marine biologist: Rosie Williams

I'm interested in the effects of chemical pollution on environmental health. My research is focused on trying to understand what effect pollution has on the health of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

Paleobiologist: Daniela Schmidt

I look at marine ecosystems in the past and present to try and get a better understanding of how climate change changes the oceans and affects marine ecosystems.

And some historical ones!
