Biology workshops for schools
This workshop covers cells, microorganisms, photosynthesis, and the human body. It is designed to enhance the knowledge of biology topics taught in school classrooms with five fun practicals. Our activities with the use of microscopes will allow students to view organisms with stunning detail at a magnification of 1000x.
2 x half-day or 3 x 1.5hrs,
max 60 students in a day,

Primary, Secondary, Sixth Form,
KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5
Examine Plant Cells
Students will examine prepared onion epidermis plant cells under a microscope.
Examine Bacteria Slides
Students will examine various bacteria cells under a microscope to better understand microorganisms.
Conduct a practical to observe oxygen produced during photosynthesis with algae submerged in water.
Put together wooden toys/puzzles of the human body. The models include organs, skeletons, and muscles. Different puzzles are available for primary and secondary school students.
Typical Workshop Day
- We will start the day by discussing what cells are and the differences between animal and plant cells.
- Practical - We will introduce children to the microscopes we will be using for the examination of cells and explore all different parts of the microscope.
- Practical - We will give students microscope slides of onion cells and view them under a microscope at different magnifications.
- We will discuss features of microorganisms including bacteria and viruses.
- Practical - We will then give students microscope slides of bacteria to view under the microscopes.
- We will discuss the process of photosynthesis and how plants produce food.
- Practical - We will give students plant material to place inside a test tubes and observe how oxygen bubbles are produced during photosynthesis in plants.
- Practical - Students will be given wooden toys/puzzles of human anatomy covering organs, bones, and muscles. We will then discuss the role of organs in our bodies.
- Usually, we will reset the session and repeat it for another group of children on the same day. As with all our engagements, we will end the day with a street-dance performance.
