Abstract: The field of scientific research, by definition, is constantly developing new techniques and adapting current thinking in order to address pertinent issues. With curriculum constraints and exam-based teaching, it is becoming increasingly challenging to engage young people in new ideas and methods, and thus facilitate them in becoming the scientists of the future. A new project developed though collaboration between the Cothill Educational Trust and The Natural History Museum aims to develop a deeper understanding of biodiversity science in pre-GCSE aged children, kindling a real excitement for the science subjects at school.
