Natural History Museum Back to School.
Schools at the Museum
We have a wealth of curriculum-linked science activities to inspire your class in the new school year. With activities supporting a broad range of topics, including evolution and adaptation, biodiversity, taxonomy and how science works, the Natural History Museum has got engaging out-of-the-classroom science covered.
Out-of-the-classroom science
Join the adventure
This autumn, an intrepid group of Museum scientists are heading to the forests of Sabah in Borneo. Your Key Stage 2–5 students can join them through our programme of video conference events and live chats, and discover what it’s like to perform cutting-edge research in one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet.

A day in the life
More than 300 scientists work at the Museum. Visit the Cocoon to meet some of them and explore the hidden world of scientific research. A Day in the Life of a Scientist is a self-guided resource for Key Stages 3 and 4 and post-16, which encourages students to find out how scientists study biodiversity and to report their findings back at school.
