Biology Week showcases the important and amazing world of the biosciences, getting everyone from children to professional biologists involved in fun and interesting life science activities.
Now in its sixth year, Biology Week sees events take place all over the world that celebrate biology, get more people involved and aware of the subject, and encourages as many people as possible to embrace their enthusiasm for the subject.
Events get more diverse every year and can be run by anyone with enthusiasm for biology; science festivals, Big Biology Days, dino digs, competitions, lectures, fungal forays, music and storytelling - anyone and everyone can get involved.
