Big Biology Day is all about hands-on biology science fun for all ages!

Saturday 15th October, 10 – 4pm, Hill Road Sixth Form College Cambridge, CB2 8PE

Come along and meet biology experts at this free, fun-packed educational day of biology! This event is a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on with science activities, meet real scientists, including researchers from British Antarctic Survey, and learn more about different careers in biology.

Have you been inspired by Frozen Planet 2? Chat to our scientists and find out how animals and plants survive on the frozen continent and in the icy Southern Ocean, discover how life has evolved over millions of years and what threats and changes might exist in the future. You can also learn more about how humans are affecting the icy polar caps, such as through plastic pollution and climate change, and how this affects the wildlife living there. Interested in working at the icy ends of the Earth? We can talk to you about the different jobs you can do, from researcher to plumber to chef, and give advice to budding polar explorers!
