Be A Little Scientist At Little Day Out x StemCord’s Virtual Workshop
Ever wondered what our body looks like on a microscopic level? Or have you had a chance to look closely at a petal, a leaf, or a strand of hair or feather?
Participants to the “Little Scientist Workshop” will encounter the world of cells through a virtual workshop which includes a hands-on “Make Your Own Paper Microscope” session, lesson on what cells are and why stem cells are so special, a never-before Behind The Scenes tour of StemCord’s Cord Blood Banking facility and then get ready to be quizzed!
Come dressed as little scientists – in your field of choice: microbiology, zoology, virology, ecology – and be prepared to find out what is the basic unit that makes life possible! Every budding scientist needs to know this!
The Little Day Out team, together with StemCord professionals and Little Changemakers will facilitate a fun morning of making a foldscope, learning about cells and stem cells and go BTS (behind the scenes) at StemCord.
Little Changemakers provides learning opportunities through designing and developing hands-on educational materials. Facilitators from Little Changemakers encourage creation, experimentation and lots of learning through play.
BTS At StemCord And Celebrating StemCord’s 20th Anniversary
The Little Scientist workshop commemorates StemCord’s 20th anniversary.
To celebrate 20 years of cord blood banking in Singapore and the region, StemCord wants to celebrate life with families through this enriching virtual workshop. Founded by a team of doctors, StemCord is Singapore’s cord blood bank focusing on processing and preserving precious cord blood and cord stem cells.
We will take an exclusive look Behind The Scenes at Singapore’s private cord blood bank.
Do you know the magic of our umbilical cord blood? Would you like to see how the cord blood is processed? Did you know that the cord blood stem cells will need to be stored at an optimal temperature of -180 °C?
Participants of “Little Scientist Workshop” will get a chance to see how cord blood is collected, processed and stored in the laboratories of StemCord.
