Both Year 6 classes recently visited the Centre of the Cell which is a science education centre based at Queen Mary, University of London. It is the first science education centre in the world to be located within working biomedical research laboratories.
Centre of the Cell is built within a distinctive orange Pod suspended above the laboratories in the Blizard Institute in Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. Pupils were able to see research scientists at work as they entered the centre. Once inside the cell, the children learnt about the amazing world of cells, the human body and the latest medical research via the many interactive games.
