Hands-on science showcased at Manchester Science Festival
The University of Manchester is among those supporting the Manchester Science Festival. It’s showcasing nanotechnology, glow in the dark chemicals, and how to make graphene among the hands-on science activities.
Science Spectacular, writes the university, features scientists and engineers from throughout the University who will demonstrate their work through fun activities and workshops and “science buskers”.
The annual Festival, now in its seventh year, is an 11-day celebration of science, which is produced by MOSI (Museum of Science & Industry, Manchester) in partnership with Siemens. Visitors are invited to play, create and experiment with science through surprising installations, immersive science experiences and hands-on experiments in over 100 events for all ages at venues throughout Greater Manchester.
