After Hours: Rogue Cells


Thu 5 March 2020


6:30 pm – 10:00 pm


Techniquest is teaming up with Wales Cancer Partnership to bring you an evening of fun activities and give you an insight into cutting-edge cancer research.

This After Hours, as well as the two floors of hands-on exhibits and puzzles for you to get stuck in to, we have:

  • Crack the Cancer Code — look around the venue for clues, complete the trail to ‘unlock’ the Crow’s Nest where you can get stuck into lots more fun interactive games and puzzles
  • DNA jewellery making — isolate DNA from your own cheek cells, to make a unique double-helix keepsake (limited spaces, allocated on a first-come first-served basis)
  • Come and meet Show Me The Science (formerly MicroScientists) and their Giant Microbes — plush organisms and cells, only a million times actual size!
  • Explore the wonders of the immune system with researchers from the British Society for Immunology
  • Find out if you’re a ‘Supertaster’, find out what a house filled with peas has got in common with our bodies and have your ‘cellfie’ taken at with Tenovus Cancer Care
  • Listen to a performance by a Sing with Us Choir for people affected by cancer, and find out all about the research which has showed the benefits of singing
  • Get a 360° virtual reality lab tour
  • Fully licensed bar
  • Street food delivered by Cleverchefs
