February half term events

February half term events available to book now!

We have two of our popular shows for you over the February half term. If you have ever wondered what Snot, Sick or Scabs are made of, why cheesy feet smell so bad or how your body fights off microscopic monsters when they manage to invade your body, then this show is for you. We have ‘Snot, Sick and Scabs’ show.  Or get excited about the digestive system with our popular ‘Gut Feeling’ show

Join us to experience COVID-proofed activities, and spend time in our fantastic STEM Pod learning the fundamentals about human health. 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 February half term!

Book now via our booking calendar.

Our shows have been adapted to be Covid-secure. Key changes include capacity limits, face masks to be worn by over-11s, hand sanitizer upon arrival and enhanced cleaning measures.

Snot, Sick and Scabs show & STEM Pod experience

Gut Feeling show & STEM Pod experience

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!
