What is it
Explore the outside of your body with hands-on experiments teaches you a lot about the inside anatomy of the body.
Examine your fingerprints to learn how you are unique. Build a stethoscope and listen to your heartbeat to learn how your heart pumps blood, and listen to your gurgling tummy to learn how your stomach works. With the stethoscope, you can investigate how your ears hear with a listening game and a sound memory experiment.
Test your lung capacity to learn about how your lungs work. Examine your diet and your digestive functions to learn how your body processes nutrients to give you the energy to do more experiments!
Try a blindfolded exercise to find out about hand-eye coordination. Take a tickle test to learn about your skin and sensory receptors. Monitor your pulse to learn about your circulatory system. Follow your nose in a smell memory game to learn about your sense of smell. Take a blindfolded taste test to learn about your tongue.
Try some balancing exercises to explore your muscles and bones. Discover how your ears play a role in your balance. Construct a magic telescope, spin an optical illusion top, and hold a staring contest to see how your eyes work.

What our experts think
Good that the pack came with everything needed.
Manual was detailed with lots of visuals making it very child friendly.
Liked the sectioned instructions particularly the ‘How it works’ box indicated by the lightbulb.
Children flicked through to find the experiments they were most interested in.
Some of the equipment could be used in multiple experiments.
It would be even better if...
The cardboard cut-outs were not so flimsy and were easier to stick together.
Teacher felt it was a good kit for classroom learning. Hearing what was going on particularly (stethoscope) kept them engaged.
Good for role play playing doctors and nurses
