Creating child’s play of understanding the cell was the outcome of a workshop delivered by Gull lab postdoc Flavia Moreira-Leite at the Cutteslowe Primary School in North Oxford on 15 and 17 March.

The workshop, part of British Science Week, helped 7 – 10 year old pupils at the school understand what cells are and how they function.  

Flavia said: “Children thought it was very cool. In particular, they enjoyed pretending to be kinesins (carrying a bag for a vesicle) and walking on a microtubule (piece of string) to the sound of a 70s track. It was an animated and interesting activity. The teachers said they learnt a lot as well!”
