Get active and crafty, with games and stickers that explain how your body’s immune cells protect you from disease and keep you healthy. Play the ball pool challenge to discover how future treatments for cancers might work, and make your own science sticker stories to take home.
This workshop, developed by Donald J. Davidson, Iris Mair, Ross Mills, David Taggart , Marc Vendrell and Julia Dorin (all researchers from the University of Edinburgh Centre for Inflammation Research), with funding from the British Society for Immunology, has the children rotating through linked, creative and active fun activities, which teach basic immunology using cartoons, puppets, 3D puzzles, stickers, and a ball-pool challenge game. Participants will learn how the immune system works to keep us healthy and how recent scientific discoveries are helping in the development of new treatments designed to help fight cancer.
The children will learn about the different connections that make the immune system so fascinating, and will have the opportunity to meet and talk to active medical research scientists.
Suitable for ages 7-13 years.
