After attracting more than 600 youngsters in its first ten days, Bahrain Science Centre is continuing its series of science workshops through to the end of August. As well as having the opportunity to try out the centre’s amazing equipment, kids will have the chance to meet a real scientist and learn all about how our eyes work as he dissects a camel’s eye, they’ll also learn how to dissect a fish finding its gills, stomach, swim bladder etc for a real hands-on learning experience.
