Science centre opens its doors
FAMILIES are being given the chance to have a look around East London's unique science centre during the half-term when the Centre of the Cell opens its doors from October 26 to 30
FAMILIES are being given the chance to have a look around the East End's unique new science centre during the half-term holiday.
The Centre of the Cell is opening its doors from Monday October 26 to Friday October 30 when families can book a slot for a free session and enjoy the first science centre in the world to be located within working research laboratories.
It is based in a giant `pod' in Queen Mary University's Blizzard Building in Newark Street, Whitechapel and gives children the chance to learn more about the science of cells.
Once inside the centre, the central 'nucleus' opens up to reveal touch-table games and kids can take part in virtual experiments, learn the importance of brushing their teeth, heal extensive burns and have their cells counted.
Visitors can book a slot by visiting www.centreofthecell.org.
