Bio Art Attack Competition
Bio Art Attack Competition
Are you passionate about art and science? Get creative and enter the Bio Art Attack competition for the Royal Society of Biology.
Your entry can be anything from drawings and sculptures to models and collages of any scale.
You need to tell us in writing a bit about your piece, including:
  • The title of your piece
  • Equipment and material used
  • What your piece depicts
  • The science behind your piece
Inspiration 
  • From the very big to the very small: Your BioArtAttack could take inspiration from the smallest parts of the natural world that only a microscope can see: think cell structures, bacterial colonies and microscopic organisms. If you prefer to think big, you could use vast environments or ecosystems as the theme of your entry. Your piece of art could be based around great savannahs, wide-open plains or immense rainforests and the huge range of diversity contained within them.
  • Hands-on science: Lab or field equipment could be the focus of your artwork, with fascinating tools and apparatus being used by scientists to provide ways to make wonderful discoveries. Take a look around your school lab or science classroom to get started with ideas for your entry.
  • Scientific concepts: Why not use your Bio Art Attack to help explain a biological concept, theory or area of biology that particularly interests you?
To submit your entry, you need to bring it into school or send a photograph of your creation and include the information detailed above. Please send them to Mrs Mander,  Mrs Drake or Mrs Taylor.  The deadline for entries is Tuesday 30th November. [email protected] or [email protected]

 

It’s time to get into the festive spirit and encourage your pupils to get involved in this year’s Christmas card competition.
The poster details all of the requirements, including space for each school to add a contact lead member of staff and deadline. All entries will need to be emailed to [email protected] by Wednesday 10th November.
The winning and runner-up designs will be used as the annual OAT and Ormiston Trust (OT) Christmas cards. The cards will be printed on carbon neutral or recycled card, and digital versions will also be created.
