In July 2013, a selection of students from London Art & Design colleges were invited to participate in a Sci-Art workshop led by scientific illustrator Abi Lingford and Museum scientists Consuelo Sendino and Paul Taylor. They were challenged to produce a textile design based on their concept of bryozoans – small animals that construct colonies in the sea, feeding on plankton.
Biochemical research has identified them as potential sources for pharmaceutical products, including the anti-cancer drug bryostatin.

All three prizes went to BA Textile Design students from Central Saint Martins:
1st prize: Dani Greenwald
2nd prize: Jiajun Zhang
3 rd prize:  Chloe Glews

The Rorypora project was showcased in the National History Museum in December 2013.
