Centre of the Cell
Centre of the Cell is the first science education centre in the world to be located within biomedical research laboratories. The 'Pod' is dramatically suspended above the laboratories and contains films, digital interactive games, microscopes, ethical debates, careers information, Patient Journeys and body parts. Everything you need to learn about cells and cell biology in medical research (curriculum-linked). The research labs are part of Barts & The London Medical School at Queen Mary University of London. There's a scientist in every school session. Explore How Science Works in the building in which it is done, with the people who do it! KS2, KS3 & KS4, 40 people per session. Centre of the Cell's website is a stand-alone learning resource and the project runs live science shows and hands-on science workshops in schools.
