Nov 2018 – Blood

Date and Time: Saturday, 10 November 2018, 3pm – 5pm
Venue: Studios A & B, Spazju Kreattiv

Kids Dig Science is coordinated by the Science in the City team at the Malta Chamber of Scientists. This season, the team will once again meet with the scientists to find out the latest in all things science, then cut it down to size for children above the age of 6. It was conceived to inspire curious little minds, to ignite their passions and foster creativity. If you’re looking for a way to inspire your children, Kids Dig Science is a must.

There is so much that can be said for blood. It’s made up of four parts – plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Each part has a special job. Plasma is a yellow liquid that helps give you energy and grow. Red blood cells carry oxygen to your cells.

How do you explain this to young children? Luckily, you don’t have to! Our puppets and scientists are here to break it down, through interactive theatre and hands on science experiments.Creative TeamKaren Fiorini (co-ordinator); Dr Edward Duca (science communications consultant); Sean Briffa (puppeteer and actor); Matthew Grech (hands on science experiments, games and crafts manager)
