2pm Model Neuron
Nerve cells, or neurons, are the basic units of the nervous system. The human body contains billions of neurons the brain alone has more than 86 billion. neurons make up the brain alone. To understand a bit more about how neurons work, we’re going to make a model of one!
Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at all times. Most suitable for children aged 7-11 years. Younger siblings will be able to join in with some adult support.
