Spectacular Science: Manchester Museum Takeover!

28 Oct 2016

A free, fun-filled family day of science challenges, live experiments, and hands-on demonstrations to delight children and adults alike

Science Spectacular

Help us create a superhero, become a cell explorer, or build a world of fungus. Investigate our universe, make a mini robot dance, explore new wonder materials, and much, much more.

At the same time, our science buskers will be lining Oxford Road dishing out dazzling displays of scientific wizardry.

Sheena Cruickshank, the University’s Academic Lead for Public Engagement with Research, said: “This award winning event is a treasure of delights showcasing the variety of amazing and excellent science at the University.”

Manchester has a proud history of scientific discovery and by coming to the Science Spectacular you’ll be able to make some discoveries of your own!

So come on down to Manchester Museum on Saturday, 29 October (10am-4pm) for some Spectacular Science!
