Teachers Take Part

From March 2021 to July 2022, students aged 15 to 18 can get close to a cutting-edge long-term science project that’s happening right now.

Schools @ Darwin Tree of Life is a student-led, online activity where students can follow the progress of the Darwin Tree of Life project in real-time.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the project that is sequencing and annotating the genomes of every living thing in Britain and Ireland.

Students can:

  • Ask questions to teams of researchers and scientists working on the project
  • Connect with them in live Chats
  • Vote for their favourites to win
  • Study independently and develop their research skills before heading on to Higher Education

As a teacher, you can:

  • See which of your students are taking part, and what they’re asking
  • Book an exclusive live Chat for groups of 10+ students at a time that suits you best

Schools @ Darwin Tree of Life activities will continue until 2022.

The activity all online and accessible from school or at home.
All your students need is a computer or tablet, and Internet access – no audio or video is needed.
