Event description

Description

1) What makes up a human body?

2) What are the names of the different organs and what are their functions?

3) What is good and bad for the body?

Find out answers to all of these questions whilst playing Organopoly with us. Organopoly is an interactive and eye-catching educational game for children and adults alike, teaching them fascinating biology whilst playing. To promote this resource to Cambridgeshire families with children 9-16 years old, we will be running a whole-day game event at Ross Community Centre from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 14 October. Two games will be played in parallel with maximum 8 players per board. Each session will last 2h30min, with the option to attend the morning (10 am - 12.30 pm) or the afternoon (1.30 pm - 4 pm) session. Free versions of the game and additional educational resources to take home will be provided at the end.

The event is free of charge, but bookings are mandatory for individual players (bookings are not required for attending family members). This event is supported by the Royal Society of Biology Regional Grant Scheme.
