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.
