Being allergic: not fun during the holidays!

With its numerous family gatherings and abundance of food, for persons with allergies, the holiday period is not always fun! In the company of a scientific moderator, participants will demystify allergies by visiting the exhibition Allergies get people talking!. By means of a handicraft activity, visitors will try to come up with some actions that could make the holiday period magical for people suffering from allergies! In the laboratory, young and old alike will observe various specimens, such as pollen, dust mites, and moulds, using a binocular magnifier.

The activity is sure to please all members of the family over the age of 5. Younger children are also welcome. However, supervision by the parents is essential, notably in the laboratory to ensure their safety and avoid breakage of the material.

The activity has been presented on December 16th, 23rd, 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th 2017 and January 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th 2018.
