“Little Cells” school visits for the primary school Junior cycle

Little Cells


Little Cells is an interactive session that introduces the junior cycle of primary school to the concept of cells that form our body. Developed last year in collaboration with Dr How Science’s Wows, this discovery session helps children to discover the cells that belong to our blood, brain, heart or muscle through interactive play and hands on projects.

The session makes use of a presentation as well as visual and tactile games. In the last part of the session, the children will create their very own type of cell from jumping clay and will be able to take it home.
