Try out out some of these fabulous activities which have been developed by the Welcome Centre for Cell Biology
Researching the Wonder of Water – Magic or Science?
Cells are the tiny building blocks that make up all living things and they are made of more water than anything else. In fact, they are made of around 70% water. Learn more about how fascinating water is by trying some of these “magical tricks”.
Bake a Beautiful Cell
DNA exists in every cell of our body and carries the unique recipe that makes up each living thing. Discover more through our instructions to make your own edible biscuit cells.
The Centre for Cell Biology is one of fifteen UK-based Wellcome Trust Centres, three of which are in Scotland. We were granted full Centre status by the Wellcome Trust in 2001, the year that the draft human genome was published. Our mission is to play a significant part of the scientific global endeavour aimed at understanding living systems at the molecular level, making discoveries that advance knowledge of normal and abnormal cell function.
