Royal Holloway Science Festival 2016 - Targeted Therapy Game
I participated together with a team of ICR scientists in the Royal Holloway annual science festival that took place Saturday 5th March in Egham (Surrey). With the goal of inspiring children with the cancer research we do at the ICR, we decided to create an activity to explain targeted cancer therapy (as opposed to more toxic chemotherapy) in a way that children could have fun whilst learning. We named the activity "Targeted Therapy Game" and we played with ball sizes and spoons and tongues to show how targeting the drugs to the tumour in a more precise way was a much better approach to treat cancer. It was really very good fun! Link Activity Description.
