Revolting Fun at Thackray Medical Museum

 29 May - 2 June 2017

Enjoy some revolting fun this Half Term by entering the Body Lab at Thackray Medical Museum. From 29th May to 2nd June, the museum invites you to investigate your bodily functions in a series of hands-on science workshops.

If you always wanted to know why wee changes colour or why we create snot when we have a cold, then these workshops are for you. Roll up your sleeves and don your lab coat to make a fake poo, mix ingredients to resemble sick, make slimy snot and create fake scabs.

Charlotte Chester, Learning Officer said “These activities are really hands-on and messy and great fun to take part in. By explaining the purpose of these bodily functions and their importance to keeping healthy, visitors will go away with an understanding of how the body works and what to look out for when things go wrong.”

Family workshops take place from 29th May to 2nd June between 11am and 3pm. Museum admission charges apply, but there is no extra charge to take part. For full details visit the museum website
