Gore Blimey! It’s half term!
Blogging science to life
Fri 21 October 2011, Written by: Nicole
From Saturday 22 October, Live Lab will be transformed into Gore Blimey! Dissection lab. There will be round the clock organ dissections, where you can really get to grips with amazing organs. Compare how your eye matches up to a horses’s, find out how much blood pumps through a heart and bring science to life (literally!) by dissecting and re-animating a sheep’s lung!
For the more squeamish amoung us, never fear, there are other anatomical activities to entertain you. What better way to understand exactly what is under our skin than to see it– with vein, muscles and bones body painting!
If you have ever wondered how blood clots form, or are thinking about making your own horror film, make sure you look out for our fake blood bank – where you can make DIY blood!
Things can continue on the physical theme with All About Us, see if you have got your vein painting right with Vein Viewer and get a feel for brains … with Weigh-a -Brain!
And if you fancy a break from bodies you can always escape to the Planetarium to watch the Autumn night sky or Little Stars, listen to an imaginative story with storytelling or playing on the hundreds of exhibits on offer.
Dissection Lab: 22 - 31 October. Throughout the day.
Boggling Brain show: 12.15, 13.30 and 15.45
Storytelling: 11.00 and 14.30
Autumn night sky: 11:00, 12:30, 13:15, 14:45, 15:30, 16:15
Little Stars: 11.45, 14.00
Beat the rush, plan your day your way and buy tickets online
