f Explorer Dome: Human Body and Cells

The Human Body & Cells

Hands-on guides to healthy eating, disgusting digestion and the wierd world of inner space!

A brief summary

We have two separate human biology shows.
Our Human Body show is a fun filled, disgusting journey to find out what happens to your food from plate to poo! Our Cell show discusses the fundamental units of living things from the perspective of human cells that make up our adapted tissues, organs and systems. Both shows are available for KS3 students.

The show varies a great deal for different audiences.
More details of timing, capacity and curriculum links are below.
