For Kids

This section is for kids. Charles Darwin was a brilliant naturalist who changed the way people think about life on earth. One reason why he was able to do this was because he was always passionate about science and nature!

From a young age Darwin collected lots of different things like stones and beetles and performed experiments with his brother in the garden shed. It was this early interest that helped him become a great man!

Here you can read about who he was and what he did, hopefully it will inspire you to get out and explore nature too!
