How to Build a Human: Design a Card Game Challenge:

Meet Human Cell Atlas Members – Q&A

Thursday 25 February 2021


The Challenge:

The Meet Human Cell Atlas Members Q&A session is part of How to Build a Human: Design a Card Game Challenge, the exciting new Key Stage 3 virtual schools challenge that is inspired by science and the human body. The challenge is straightforward and simple to build into lessons – whether online or in class.

Students will design a card game inspired by Human Cell Atlas research into human cells and tissues. The students who submit the winning concept for the card game will get to work with award winning toy designer, Heayes Design. Their game will be developed into a real product which will be sent to every participating school across the UK.

The Meet Human Cell Atlas Members – Q&A session:

This 1 hour session gives you and your students a unique opportunity to meet people involved in creating the Human Cell Atlas. Join us to hear from our UK panel of lab scientists, software developers, data scientists and researchers as they tell you about how their work is helping to map all the cells in the human body. 

We will then open the floor for you and your students to ask any questions you may have for our Human Cell Atlas team.  If you want to make sure your, or your student’s question gets asked, you can send it to us ahead of time.

Please send the name of your school, your student’s first name, age and questions to Suzy O’Hara by 5pm, Tuesday 23rd February 2021

There will also be time for you to ask our partners, Little Inventors and Heayes Design any questions you might have about our How to Build a Human: Design a Card Game Challenge

The How to Build a Human: Design a Card Game Challenge runs from 8 January until 1 April 2021 and is free to enter.
