Make a stethoscope

Listen to what’s going on inside your body, or your friend’s… …or maybe even a pet? Make a basic DIY stethoscope using tubes, card and balloons then listen to what thump-thumps, glug-glugs and other bubbling bodily noises are going on inside you. Drop-in activity.

When: Wed 26th October 2022 / 10.30am to 3.30pm
Price: £3.50 per child
