Have you got the skills needed to work in an operating theatre? Is there a budding surgeon in your family?  Find out by taking part in Junior Surgeon at Thackray Medical Museum this February Half Term.

These hands-on family workshops are perfect for inquisitive children who would like to know more about how their body works. With the help of an expert from St. James’s Hospital, you will be led through the dissection of a kidney to understand how it functions, before getting the chance to stitch it back together again using techniques used in real life surgery.

 

Charlotte Chester, Learning Officer said: “We are so pleased to be working with staff from St. James’s Hospital again this half term. These fantastic family workshops make learning about the body fun and we hope we may be able to inspire some surgeons of the future”.
Workshops take place at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on weekdays between 12th and 23rd February.  Usual museum admission charges apply and there is a small charge of £3 per kidney. Don’t forget that admission tickets allow unlimited return for 12 months and if you are already annual ticket holders, then you will get in for free and only need to pay for the workshop.  Visit the website for booking details www.thackraymedicalmuseum.co.uk
