After last year success, the Cell EXPLORERS show is running again on exhibition day!
Budding explorers will navigate through 5 working stations and will be able to discover the structure of human cells using models, to observe their own cells under small and large microscopes, to build a DNA double helix and to extract DNA from cells. A hand’s on practice of cellular and molecular biology, we will have more microscopes available this year! Every participant will have the opportunity to practice all activities.
The Cell EXPLORERS show is supported by a SFI DSE award.
Capacity: 80 (2 shows of 40)
Shows: 2 shows will run in parallel at the following time: 11.00 12.30 14.00 15.30
Suitable for parents and children (from 6 years old)
Last year participants feedback:
Children: ”I learned a lot – amazing! I used to not like science but now I love it too much. Excellent. Great day. It was cool! It was fun!”
Parents: “I want to in particular compliment the Cell EXPLORERS team. Their workshop on Sunday was outstanding. It really made biology interesting. My three children 12,10 and 8 really enjoyed it as did I…” It was very very good. SUPER. Excellent festival and great students. Well organised- flowed perfectly well done. Excellent staff/demonstrators. Staff brilliant. Brilliantly presented by enthusiastic scientists. Can’t wait for next year – my son loved it!”
