Embark on a disgusting but utterly scientific journey through the human body with BBC gastronaut Stefan Gates.
A truly revolting multimedia adventure through the human body from head to bottom, exploring what really happens to a mouthful of food after you've eaten it, and bringing the world's most disgusting science into the open.
This session includes snot-eating, cooking with vomit and spit, lots of gut action, fluid dynamics of sphincters, the sensory perception of flatus, a huge vortex cannon firing smells around the auditorium and, of course, live on-stage excretion.
This event will run at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm and last approximately 45 minutes.
