HOPE for the Future is a three-year project at Oxford University Museum of Natural History funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project is named after Frederick William Hope, an important entomologist in the 1840s. The museum houses a vast collection of Hope's British insects.
The aims for the project include to nurture and enthuse children and young people about natural sciences generally and insects in particular, and to explore how our British Insect collections and expertise could support and enhance science learning in and out of school, building the next generation of scientists.
