Did you know that haemoglobin is the reason your blood is red? There are 270 million haemoglobin in just one red blood cell and it’s their job to carry oxygen to every part of your body. These microscopic molecules look just like pom-poms.
Join us in this hands-on activity exploring the microscopic world of cells, and see what’s going on under your skin with the vein detector.
Make and take home your own pom-pom haemoglobin. Watch scientific animator Drew Berry’s haemoglobin animation in the Body exhibition and see just how much like a pom-pom haemoglobin really is.
