Big Biology Days

A Big Biology Day is a one day science festival that celebrates the life sciences and engages the general public with an array of biological topics, through hands on activities, crafts and displays, bringing together a number of biological organisations under one roof.

We were delighted that a number of Big Biology Days took place throughout the UK in and around Biology Week and we hope that more of you are inspired to run your own BBD in 2017!

The Royal Society of Biology East Anglia branch devised and ran the first ever Big Biology Day, and they have evolved to be bigger and better every year.

Find out how you could run your own Big Biology day or other local events in your area:

Please contact for more information about our Big Biology Days, if you would like to participate, or even run your own.
