Explore at Home Competition 2020

We want you to help tackle the problem and use Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) to propose solutions to this challenge. You might start by finding out about a particular species that you can find in your garden or local area. You could research its habitat, if it may be endangered as a species perhaps because of changes to habitat, new predators or competitors. You could use this information to propose ways to help save this species by creating a habitat for it. You could create an entire habitat or devise other ways to help sustain this species. You can choose any species for example hedgehogs, newts, bats, birds, bugs etc.
