We’re Game for Immunity
This board game follows the life of a character trying to navigate the complex world of health and wellness. At each new board tile, the character will face a challenge from needle fears to social media misinformation. Together, the players must decide on a strategy to overcome these challenges.
This presenter-led show brings kids and teens through the basics of the cascade of an immune response, from initial breach to pathogen destruction. From eyelashes to “eating” cells, participants will get the chance to see first-hand how our body defends itself and learn the role vaccines play in helping the body deal with these tiny threats.
