We've been working on a new edition of our SUPERLAB comic and are very excited to share it with members as a digital download.
SUPERLAB is our comic for children at Key Stage 2 (7-11 year olds) and features all sorts of fun activities - each one designed to inform young people about the science at the heart of healthcare.
The new comic features:
- A diagnostic activity with tie-ins to clinical chemistry and microbiology
- A petri dish biscuits baking activity
- Activities to understand PCR & viruses
- And much more!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for print copies to use in public engagement

A small number of the comics are also included in our usual packs of promotional items - which are available for our members in the usual place.
IBMS member Chrisy Yates, who helped create the comic, took copies to her grandson's school. They said:
The children really engaged with the booklet. They especially enjoyed being creative when making their own science superhero and liked that the booklet has a superhero theme with eye catching colours and designs.
Pupils talked about how the booklet had a flow and structure in that the characters were firstly introduced and then each was looked at in more detail in a scientific way. They also liked the range of activities in the book and thought that they were able to take away scientific facts from them too.
