'Meet the Expert' at ThinkTank Science Museum, Birmingham, 27th October 2016
Autumn half term means families will be flocking to ThinkTank to meet experts from the Medical School at the University of Birmingham, and children can practice being a mini-scientist and a mini-doctor for the day. This is a great opportunity to light a spark in your child's career path (and being a doctor or scientist is slightly more obtainable than being an astronaut!). Activities will stimulate young and older minds, and there will be lots of fun games and tips to help ensure your children stay healthy, and take that knowledge through to adulthood.
