‘Grossed out’ October half term

This October come and visit us for our special Halloween themed sessions titled ‘Grossed out’  where we will be focusing on snot, sick, scabs, bones and guts!

Ever wondered how your body fights off microscopic monsters, or how many bones there are in the human body? Do you know what snot is made of, or how to make a healthy poo? Join us for some of our most popular and grossed out shows during Halloween half term. We’ll be running our shows ‘Snot, Sick & Scabs’, ‘Muscling In’ and ‘Gut Feeling’, and each session will include interactive tabletop activities. All sessions this half-term are suitable for children age 7 – 14 and their families.

Please note sessions will not include the STEM Pod experience.

Whatever you choose, there’s something to interest all budding scientists at Queen Mary University of London’s family science centre, Centre of the Cell, this October!

Book now via our booking calendar.

Gut Feeling show + hands on activities

Let us take you on the weird and wonderful journey of one boy’s breakfast as it gets chomped and chewed in the mouth, pushed through the oesophagus, churned in stomach acids, absorbed in the intestines and greeted by the toilet bowl! This show will unravel the fascinating structure and function of the digestive tract, why ‘we are what we eat’, what happens to the guts of patients with bowel diseases, and what makes the perfect poo!
