Your immune army: discover how your immune system works

The Cambridge Immunology exhibit will explore your immune system, and look at how your body protects you from attacks by disease causing agents (virus, bacteria, fungus).

Every day your immune system is busy protecting you from the thousands of germs around you that can make you sick. It does its job so efficiently that you don’t even notice that it is at work. Join us for some hands on activities and listen to our scientists explain how your immune system works.

We have stickers, colouring books, cuddly microbes and cells, a Microscope!!!
