Zombies have taken over York and brought the city to a standstill – but we were quick enough to catch one!
Come along and get involved as University of York scientists dissect the captured zombie in front of a live audience. This gruesome interactive event has hands-on opportunities to study the infectious agent causing the outbreak. Examine the zombie blood, play with brains and more.
Will you be able to save York by working out how the disease started and how we can stop the onward march of the zombies? Be entertained, learn the science behind zombies and experience an event you will not forget.
Through the highly-engaging narrative of a zombie epidemic, children take part in the story while learning along the way. Science is communicated in an accessible and creative way, informing children about the origin and symptoms of infectious diseases and the different ways of treating them.
This interactive hands-on workshop is aimed at children aged eight to 12.
PLEASE NOTE: TICKETS ARE ONLY REQUIRED BY CHILDREN WHO MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT THROUGHOUT THE EVENT.
