Free public event for families – 15 March 2014, Manchester Museum

Come and explore the human body with scientists from Life Sciences and Human & Medical Sciences at The University of Manchester.

Collect your ‘passport’ and travel around the human body from top to toe. Learn how the brain communicates with all the different organs in your body and how it controls your senses. See how the heart works and how your lungs help you breathe. Explore the wonder of the human spine and perform your very own surgery! Travel through your gut and learn about (and see) the bugs that can infect it. Collect your passport in the reception area and start your very own ‘Body Experience’. This event is running from 11am – 4pm, as part of National Science and Engineering Week.

At 1pm you’ll also be able to hear Manchester Minute Microlectures in the Museum’s Discovery Centre (near reception). A team of researchers will be explaining aspects of their work in just one minute. They will inspire and amaze us with the important research being done within The University of Manchester.

Drop-in – suitable for children aged 8+. Manchester Museum.
