Your Amazing Immune System: Operation Colodenum

Your Amazing Immune System: Operation Colodenum

May 2019: Donald J. Davidson ran a pilot school workshop “Your Amazing Immune System: Operation Colodenum” with the primary 7 children at East Linton Primary School.

This is a new interactive game- and presentation-based workshop, principally focused on the importance of vaccines and how the immune system functions to protect us against infection.

The pupils tested an interactive board game to discover how best to protect a complex bacterial ecosystem (Colodenum) from harmful infectious microbes, without severely disrupting it, followed by a presentation and great discussions about vaccines, but also incorporating teaching around the use of antibiotics and the importance of the microbiome.

Thanks to the class for being guinea pigs for this activity and for all the useful feedback!
