Discovery Days: Stem Cell Biology

Discovery Days: Stem Cell Biology

Take your pupils on a fascinating journey inside the human body, exploring the magical world of stem cells! They can learn how these cells act like builders, helping repair and maintain our bodies and how scientistis use this research to develop medicines and cure diseases.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

In partnership with the Biodiscovery Institute
