CBBC’s Operation Ouch! comes to the National Science and Media Museum-Bradford
For February half-term, the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford is joining forces with hit CBBC programme Operation Ouch! to explore the wonderful world of medicine, set up some crazy experiments, and give young fans the chance to meet the stars of the show – Dr Chris, Dr Xand, and the latest member of the team, Dr Ronx.
One of the most popular programmes on CBBC follows real-life stories from children’s A&E wards around the country, demonstrates eye-popping experiments and shares amazing facts about medicine and biology. It has won two BAFTAs (Best Children’s Factual Programme) and started its seventh series on 2 January 2019.
A whole range of half term activities and live shows have been created at the museum for families to discover more about the fascinating (and sometimes gross!) science of the human body. Visitors can also delve further into the show through clips, trails and a look at some of the medical-themed objects in the museum’s collection.
Plus, on Tuesday 19 February the presenters Dr Chris, Dr Xand and Dr Ronx will be making a special appearance at the museum to reveal some behind-the-scenes secrets and share their favourite stories (booking required, www.scienceandmediamuseum.org.uk).
John Darnbrough, Learning Programmes Developer at the museum, said: “We’re thrilled Operation Ouch! will be joining us in February, and can’t wait to take inspiration from some of the funniest, messiest and grossest bits of the show.
“If you’re a fan of the programme, interested in medicine and the human body, and want to take part in some great interactive events, we look forward to seeing you in the half term holiday.”
