Description

The Centre for Liver Research (CLR) are hosting a ‘Meet the Liver Scientist Day’ at Think Tank on the 22nd October – several thousand children are expected to attend and we have a dedicated area in Think Tank which will be promoting the University of Birmingham, the CLR and how to maintain a healthy liver.

Around 15-20 volunteers from the CLR are running a whole range of squidgy, gooey, interactive and fun experiments aimed at children 5-15 years, but we will also some great eye-opening games for parents on how many hidden calories there are in drinks such as coffee and alcohol (e.g. a large fat-free milk iced mocha with a dollop of whipped cream has the equivalent of 16 sugar cubes and 14 fat cubes – hardly fat-free!).
