Educators and young people interested in biomedical sciences may want to check out Centre of the Cell's Learn & Play resources. Part of the Queen Mary University of London, Centre of the Cell is a science education center offering a wide variety of fun and educational ways for children and families to explore the wonders of medical and health sciences. Visitors to their online Learn & Play resources will find interactive web-based games and downloadable educational apps for Android and iOs devices where they can (for example) learn about the different parts of a cell, explore what biomedical engineers do, and "build a virtual tumour and find the best way to destroy it." Teachers will find lesson plans introducing and exploring concepts such as double-blind trials in medical research, vaccinations and herd immunity, and risk factors of disease. This resource also features several digital exhibits where readers can explore the medical history of London's East End, learn about ethical questions such as cloning, and investigate various healthcare career paths by following the journeys of three patients.
