This role is an exciting opportunity to manage a key educational project in the Linnean Learning team of the Linnean Society of London.

Biomedia Meltdown is an initiative where science and art collide! The Biomedia Meltdown is an outreach project that aims to support and encourage young people to take an increased interest in biology by providing them with a platform to explore scientific ideas creatively. Alongside the creative science competition, the Linnean Learning team offers free tailored workshops in secondary schools and at other locations (such as libraries and free community events at weekends). The workshops aim to increase pupils' understanding of biological ideas and give them an opportunity to create some fantastic competition entries and engage with a learned society.
