Family Fun in Flame Lab for Science Week
An educational and fun day took place in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience’s FLAME lab on Sunday 9th of November, as part of Science week Family Open Day, which was held in the Western Gateway building.
The Department of Anatomy & Neuroscience FLAME staff welcomed budding scientists and their families into the state of the art anatomy FLAME laboratory. Visitors were taken on interactive tours of the human body, and were fascinated listening to talks on the skeleton, the heart & lungs, and the digestive system.
"Congratulations to Mike, Mags, Orla, Joy, Mutahira and Dave on a really excellent Celebrate Science event in the FLAME lab yesterday.
My children really enjoyed learning about the human body, and they loved the hands-on and interactive nature of the four information stations. Many of the families I spoke to during the day said that the FLAME tour was the highlight of the day.
Very well done to all involved!" - feedback from one family
