Visit the BHI booth at Science Alive! this weekend
Science Alive! 2016 is being held at the Adelaide Showgrounds in Wayville this weekend (from 9-5pm Saturday and Sunday). The BHI booth allows you to test your surgical skills using the laparoscopic surgery simulators (on loan from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons), and use spirometers to measure your lung volume. Do this while finding out about some of the research being undertaken at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Visit sciencealivesa.org.au for more information and buy your tickets online to avoid queues (kids are free).
