Biology Club Visit to the Natural History Museum
Scarlett Taylor 11T, Biology Club Leader sent us this report.
“On the penultimate week of term, the Year 7 Biology Club went on their first field trip. We were invited to the Natural History Museum in London following our participation in the Museum’s ‘Biota in a Box’ project this term. This project involved studying marine animals called bryozoans. We had the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes in the Museum and meet bryozoologist Mary Spencer-Jones – a world expert as one of only five bryozoologists in Europe. We were shown the amazing bryozoan collections, including the 200 bryozoan specimens Charles Darwin brought back from his journey on the Beagle! After lunch, the Biology Club members had an hour to look around the museum before visiting the Investigate Centre. The students were able to handle specimens and use computers and microscopes to take a closer look. The day was enjoyed by all and was the perfect end to a great Biology Club year.”
We would like to thank Scarlett for organising this visit and for her hard work in making the Year 7 Biology Club such a success. She is a true Invicta Ambassador.
