Pupils at St Combs Primary School will have a science lesson with a difference when Glasgow Science Centre’s On Tour team visits on Thursday 5th of February.
All children at the primary will experience BodyWorks On Tour - an interactive outreach programme about the human body with fun educational science shows, spectacular demonstrations, interactive workshops and hands-on exhibits.
Primary 1-3 pupils will see the live science show “Journey Through My Body” where the children will follow the journey of food through their body.
Older pupils in the school will discover how their diet can affect their body’s function and well-being in science show “Disgusting Digestion.”
All children will also get the chance to get hands on with the BodyVision exhibits which included synthetic human limbs and other anatomy themed exhibits.
BodyWorks On Tour, which was developed through an active partnership with GlaxoSmithKline, has exciting activities available for all age groups from nursery through to secondary.
Since its inception in 2008, over half a million people from across Scotland have engaged with BodyWorks on Tour- 40% of those being school pupils.
Each programme encourages pupils to learn more about the science behind how the human body works and how to keep it healthy.
