UTC Instagram challenge

Whether you are starting back or starting new, the return to school is a bit different this year. But there’s still so much joy in the building (honestly, we are smiling behind the masks…) and we thought it would be fab to document our days through an Instagram challenge.


We’d love for you to take part and share your moments with us.

Getting involved is so easy. Simply post your favourite pics each day from the themes below. You don’t need to post every theme or every day – but we’d love it if you do.

We’ll be posting our favourites at @lifesciencesutc ~ please remember to follow us at @lifesciencesutc tag your pics with #BacktoSchoolBaltic

We will choose five winners at the end of the month. Each winner will receive a £10 Amazon gift card (to spend on fabulous educational books obviously).



  • Please follow @lifesciencesutc
  • Share the list on your feed
  • Post the themes, making sure you use the hashtag #BacktoSchoolBaltic so we can see your post, tag @lifesciencesutc if you like, too
  • Using the day number and theme is very helpful for us when deciding on our winners, so please add them in the caption if possible
  • Also please don’t forget to like, comment and follow other posters
  • (This hashtag challenge is not endorsed or affiliated with Instagram.)
