Marjorie Casey, community participation officer at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “It’s going terrifically. Although it’s a portable exhibition, they are pretty flash really.

“This morning we’ve got around 30 children milling about and experimenting with the displays.”

A spokesman for COSMOS said: “From Space to senses - we brought space theme exhibits in 2017 and now our new exhibition is all about the mind and human body.

“Why does our body behave the way it does? Can you play a trick on your own brain?”
