Centre of the Cell

The ‘Centre of the Cell’ research group from Queen Mary

University visited Year 6. They are carrying out important

research on the effects of air pollution on children’s lungs

across a number of schools in London. Aside from the research,

Year 6 participated in a show on air and its components and

then had the opportunity to participate in workshops. The

children spent the morning inspecting x-rays, examining cells

through a microscope, experiencing how their own cells react to

infection and injury, testing their lung capacity, solving medical

dilemmas and lots, lots more.
