Hello and welcome to Go Higher West Yorkshire’s programme all about the science of the human body!

Cartoon of kids learning about science

In this programme there are lots of fun activities for you to complete and things to learn all based around science. With the help of some lovely students you will learn all about how the brain thinks, what cells are like, the organs of the body and how we fight diseases.


Each section will take you about 20-30 minutes to complete. You can do the sections in any order and there is a quiz to take part to once you have completed each topic.


If you can, take some photos of the activities you have done and send them in to us to get some feedback on your work and receive a digital certificate! Adults can do this by emailing pictures to Zac the course organiser through
