ZOOLAB'S CLIMATE CRUSADER CHALLENGE: BIOME BUILDERS

Aimed at UK primary schools, Biome Builders encourages pupils to create their own 'biome in a box' as a class or individually, using recycled and natural materials to represent their chosen environment. 

Pupils should be encouraged to look for items around their house and at school that can be repurposed, such as cardboard, paper, and plastic bottles and incorporate natural elements such as twigs, leaves, stones, and soil. 

Let the imagination run wild as you transform these simple materials into vibrant landscapes bursting with life. Whether you're crafting lush rainforests, arid deserts, or icy tundras, the possibilities are endless, mirroring the diversity of the natural world.

HOW TO ENTER:

We have no maximum size requirement on the Biome Builders entry, however we do ask that it is at a minimum the size of a cereal box. Pupils should use recycled and organic materials to create their chosen biome. Pupils can enter individually or as a class.

 

Entrants should submit a letter alongside their entry to ZooLab's Climate Crusader team explaining why they have chosen their biome and why protecting it for the planet is essential.

Once your class's Biome in a Box creation is complete, submit your photos and letter to info@zoolabuk.com 
by 21st June 2024 (extended from 5th June).

Online workshops will be available if a winner out with ZooLab's in-person range is chosen.
