Les cellules déambulent – interactive science drama

“Les Cellules Déambulent” is a fun interactive show in French, which both entertains and informs audiences, young and old, about cells, and their amazing capacity to take on a diverse range of roles in the human body. During the show, Dr Pipette and Professor LaScience take the audience through an exploration of the microscopic world of human cells, their composition and how they can differentiate to perform various specific roles in our body.

This interactive drama will be followed by the Fantastic DNA workshop facilitated by the Cell EXPLORERS NUI Galway team. Participants will prepare DNA from plant cells and be able to take it home. The workshop will be delivered in English.

Refreshments will be served during the workshop and the public will have a chance to meet with the actors and scientists.
