The Nuffield Curriculum Centre and the Biosciences Federation in association with CLEAPSS, provide inspiration and guidance for practical biology. Biology is a practical science. Practical activities are not just motivational and fun: they also enable students to apply and extend their knowledge and understanding of biology in novel investigative situations, which can aid learning and memory, and stimulate interest. This website is for teachers of biology in schools and colleges. It provides a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of biological concepts and processes. Experiments are placed within real-life contexts and have links to carefully selected further reading. Each experiment also includes information and guidance for technicians.
