Centre of the Cell
Organised by Lou
“Centre of the Cell is a science education centre based at Queen Mary, University of London. It is the first science education centre in the world to be located within working biomedical research laboratories.
Centre of the Cell is located inside a distinctive orange Pod suspended above the laboratories in the Blizard Institute in Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, so visitors will be able to see research scientists at work as they enter the centre. Once inside, visitors will learn about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research.”
THIS IS NOW FULL.
We will be visiting the pod for an interactive session all about the biology of a cell, the human body and medical research.
The cost will be £5/place (child or adult). (Depending on final numbers, you may receive a refund on the day, this is because it’s a fixed-fee booking subject to a maximum capacity)
Initially, you will only be able to book a maximum of 1 adult place per family, so the maximum number of children can go in.
You can pay via PayPal (personal transfer) to events [ at] educationista.com , bank transfer or cheque. Please do not post cash.
Your place will not be confirmed until payment is made.
This visit is aimed at KS3/11yrs+ therefore, preference will be given to children in that age group.
This venue is wheelchair accessible.
“The group will cross the bridge to Centre of the Cell’s Pod, which is suspended above the laboratories so visitors will be able to see research scientists at work as they enter the centre. Once inside, visitors will learn about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research.
The experience includes curriculum-linked interactive games grounded in cell biology and the research happening in the labs below and around the world. These games utilise the latest digital technologies. Many feature footage of scientists describing their work, and involve games based on that research. These interactive games are enhanced by the films projected onto the ceiling of the Pod which introduce the concepts of cell biology and medical research. Visitors can also enjoy microscopes and specimens from the Pathology Museum such as a human brain, learn about careers in cell biology, and debate the ethical issues surrounding medical research.”
