Not for the squeamish - children experience dissection at science event
IT was billed as one of the highlights of the science festival taking place in Bolton all this week — and it definitely was not one for the squeamish.
The University of Bolton has been celebrating the annual Manchester Science Festival by putting on a number of events to enthuse people all ages about the wonder of science.
And this year the university held a Live Dissection event exploring the major organs in the body.
Biology lecturer and Live Dissection workshop leader Dr Jen Waring said: “It was great to be involved in this year’s Manchester Science Festival.
“The Live Dissection was brilliant and the children loved it — we’ve had a fantastic response from those who took part.
“As you would expect with a dissection, it was a very hands-on workshop, but kids of all ages took part and got stuck in. It was fun, messy and they got to learn something about biology, too.”
Over the past week, children — and adults — have had the chance to meet scientists, find out why explosions happen and try their hand at being young doctors.
Research Fellow Dr Gill Smart said: “The festival has been an amazing success. It seems to get better every time. We’ve had lots of new, hands-on events this year, like the Live Dissection, which have had tremendous turnouts and feedback from those taking part.
