Come along to this year’s Science Spectacular on Saturday 29 October

Science Spectacular

This free and family-friendly event will see our scientists and students demonstrating experiments and table-top experiments to the scientists of the future. 

Join our scientists for a fun filled day of science challenges, live experiments, and interactive demonstrations. We've got activities for all ages!

Help us create a mini tornado, snuggle up to some creepy crawlies, and crack secret DNA and computer codes. We've got robots, bugs and drugs, moon rocks, fascinating fungi, and more! 

With more than 40 interactive activities you don’t want to miss out on our annual family fun day.

Don’t forget to chat with our scientists and engineers – they are behind some of the world’s most amazing discoveries.

We’ll be at the Manchester Museum on Oxford Road from 10am until 4pm.  

Our Science Spectacular is part of Manchester Science Festival which runs from 20 October until 30th October 2016.  Manchester will be a-buzz with a huge variety of events as part of the festival and many events are free.
