Have you heard about our new competition for 8-11 year olds?

Linnaeus' New Portrait

We're inviting 8-11 year olds to create a new 21st Century portrait of Carl Linnaeus to replace our current portrait while it goes away for a while. The winning portrait will hang in the centre of our historic Meeting Room (see above) for at least 2 months. It was at a Meeting of the Linnean Society that Darwin and Wallace's 'Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection' was presented for the first time.

What about our video series all about classification, habitats and plants?!

The Curious Cases of Carl Linnaeus tells funny stories about his journey of scientific exploration. You can download the videos and associated worksheets here: https://drive.google.com/drive... (or just watch them below!)
