Description

Join us at the GOSH Biomedical Research Centre Family Fun Day

Take part in fun hands on activities, meet our friendly researchers and discover how medical research at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre is helping find treatments and cures for complex childhood conditions.

This is a free event perfect for ages 5+.

Activities include:

  • Take part in a scientific treasure hunt and chat with real GOSH researchers
  • Extract DNA from strawberries
  • Build a model of DNA and discover how looking at the DNA of 100,000 people could help find new personalised treatments
  • Visit a real lab and dress up in special ‘clean room’ suits
  • Look down a real microscope and have a go at dissecting a jelly 'brain'
  • Play a memory game and learn about the part of the brain that helps us remember things
  • Explore how our immune system fights infections
  • Discover how our joints help us move
  • Find out the truth about research at GOSH in our Mythbusters film.
  • Meet members of our Young Persons Advisory Group and hear how they help make research at GOSH better.

Plus arts and crafts activities, and much more!
