Manchester Museum to be Transformed by Spectacular Science

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 11:03:00 BST

Jaw-dropping and hair-raising science experiments will be the order of the day during the latest Spectacular Science takeover of Manchester Museum.

The hands-on day of amazing science, run by top scientists from the University, offers challenges, live experiments, and interactive demonstrations to delight children and adults alike.

The Science Spectacular will be held on Saturday, 29 October from 10am to 4pm at the Manchester Museum. The completely free event will enable young people to create a superhero, become a cell explorer, or build a world of fungus all with the help of real scientists working at the University.

With their help, children will also be able to 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!”
