I’m a member of the British Society for Immunology (BSI) and I think they have some wonderful educational material – but this is the best educational resource I’ve seen yet!

It’s a card game called Micromania and it’s based on Happy Families and encourages children to learn about the immune system and infectious diseases in a game. Having read a review by a Freelance Science Communicator about how well they were received by 6-8 year old children she worked with I think this game would be great for several Key Stage curricula as the children can either just work on getting all the ‘malaria’ cards or try to read the text and become familiar with the technical information on the cards.

So if you teach Biology, or are a parent who thinks it could entertain your child, get in touch with the BSI for your school/child’s pack!
