Nina And The Neurons - Nina's Lab

Help top scientist Nina with different experiments as she uncovers the secrets of the five human senses (smell, touch, sight, sound and taste)

Introduction

This game is aimed at older children (aged 4-6) and provides an introduction to science and how it shapes our lives. There are lots of areas of the Lab to explore and interact with - your child can click on different objects and help top scientist Nina with different experiments as she uncovers the secrets of the five human senses (smell, touch, sight, sound and taste).

How to extend the fun

Click through to the Watch & Listen part of Nina's site (www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/nina/watch/experiments) for some more exciting experiments. There's lots of fascinating stuff to check out. Our favourite experiment is the one about animals that glow in the dark.

How to make a magic moment

Carry out some little experiments of your own. Put some items in a bag (eg a banana, a crayon, a cuddly toy and a feather). Tell your child to close their eyes and then see if they can work out what each item is as they take them out of the bag. Remember to tell them not to peek!
