The Tropical Time Machine at SoapWorks (22 February)


Location: SoapWorks


This half term, we’re opening the doors to SoapWorks and giving you the chance to go on a science adventure with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine’s Tropical Time Machine!

Located inside the Lyceum in what was once the Port Sunlight’s schoolroom, SoapWorks is an interactive exhibition which explores why we need soap, how it gets made, what we like to buy and why, and all the different ways we use it. SoapWorks is usually only open to schools and education groups, so this is a special opportunity for families to visit.

The Tropical Time Machine

Join us on Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine’s Tropical Time Machine adventure!

The Tropical Medicine Time Machine will be at SoapWorks between Thursday 22 February – Saturday 24 February and free to enjoy as part of your ticket. Come explore the science of Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and be transported into the past to learn about its early years and visit ‘behind the sciences’ of its present-day laboratories and herpetarium! You can also chat to some of Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine’s scientists and learn more about the work they do as the institute celebrates its 125th anniversary.
