Free Workshops

Linnean led workshops delivered for free at your school


Last year young people enjoyed one of two fun-filled sessions - taking social media by storm designing and sharing infographics on biodiversity, or channelling their inner Banksy by creating street art that showed the importance of pollinators. All workshop creations were entered into the competition.

We have just produced two brand new creative workshops aimed at KS3 Biology:

Workshop 1 – challenge your students to create an animation all about conservation, extinction, and de-extinction.

Workshop 2 – Learn all about interesting interactions in the print-making workshop, looking at different kinds of symbiotic and parasitic relationships between organisms.
