A T Cell’s Story – Journey to the Lymph Node

Good For:
This simple story book animation tells the tale of a new T cell, who finds himself lost in the body during a big emergency! Who are all these strange new immune cells he’s meeting? Why is everyone calling him “”boss””? And, most importantly, can he help protect the body against the invaders that are trying to make it sick? This virtual storytime is great for kids in early to mid elementary school.

About the

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
