Entosci20 is the entomological conference for schools and colleges, where the delegates are the pupils themselves.

Delegates will experience exciting different ‘zones’, learning all about the study of insects from the experts in the field.

The conference aims to:

  • Excite and educate both pupils and their teachers about entomology, the science of insects
  • Inspire pupils to consider a career in entomology and related sciences, from secondary school subjects, to courses in higher education and employment opportunities
  • Explain the route to study entomology from secondary school subjects to courses in higher education
  • Give pupils the chance to handle live insects and hear about different areas of entomology such as insect evolution, ecology and forensic entomology.

The conference is for KS4 - KS5 (14-18 year olds) and their teachers.
