Queen Mary University’s science education Pod in Whitechapel has two days of the family show In a Heartbeat, on February 16 and 18.

The show is about the human heart—what it does, how it works and how it manages to push so much blood around your system.

Children can also learn about the weird and wonderful world of the senses on February 17 and 19, in the Sensational interactive show packed with “tasty facts and tingly demonstrations” for ages seven upwards.

Both shows include a chance to take part in a session inside the centre’s cell-shaped Pod that is suspended over the laboratories of the Blizard medical research institute.

Once inside the Pod, they learn about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research.

Youngsters can try their hand at virtual experiments, heal extensive virtual burns, have their cells counted, study real body parts and diagnose cancer using high-power microscopes.

Events schedule is available calling 020-7882 2562 or Centre of the Cell online. Tickets can be booked at Tickets online.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
