“Organopoly”: combining fun and knowledge about the wonderful human body

Board_image_for_Eventbrite

What makes up a human body? What are the names of the different organs and what are their functions? What is good and bad for the body? Find out answers to all of these questions whilst playing “Organopoly” with us. Organopoly is an interactive and eye-catching educational game that introduces children and adults alike to key human biology knowledge as well as information related to lifestyle choices and disease prevention. To promote this resource to Cambridgeshire families with children 9-16-years-old, we will be running a whole-day game event at Ross Community Centre from 10 am – 4 pm on Saturday 14 October. Two games will be played in parallel with maximum 8 players per board. Each game session will last 2h30min, with the option to attend the morning or the afternoon session. Free versions of the game and additional educational resources to take home will be provided at the end.

Ross Street Community Centre is easily accessible by car or bike. A small car park and cycle racks are available in addition to free on-street parking locally. All rooms are wheelchair-accessible.

The event is free of charge, but bookings are mandatory for individual players (bookings are not required for attending family members). This event is supported by the Royal Society of Biology Regional Grant Scheme.
