Science Spectacular

The University's Science Spectacular takes place this Halloween and with more than 40 interactive stalls, there's something for everyone at this family fun day.

There will be lots of activities suitable for children of all ages, including face painting and lucky science dips, and there's plenty to keep adults entertained too.

Help create a mini-tornado, crack secret DNA and computer codes, and snuggle up to some creepy crawlies. Play the imitation brain game, build a world of fungus, work with mini robots, and much, much more.

The event is part of the Manchester Science Festival which is produced by the Museum of Science and Industry and runs from 22 October to 1 November.

Sheena Cruickshank, University of Manchester Lead for Public Engagement with Research said: “This fantastic event showcases some of the best research at the University of Manchester and enables people to discover more about our science and gets hands on with fun activities.”
