Free, drop in, family fun science day

Hurrah the Manchester Science Festival is nearly here and The University of Manchester is playing host to our annual family science fun day Science Spectacular!

Join our scientists and engineers for a free fun-filled day of challenges, experiments, and interactive demonstrations. Discover the bugs so viral that they actually infect other bugs, hunt for meteorites, get up close and personal with a dinosaur, and play with colourful chemistry. With more than 40 interactive science activities on offer, including face painting and lucky science dips, there will be something suitable for children of all ages, and there’s plenty to keep adults amused too.

Welcoming, entertaining, and inspiring you throughout the day will also be our science buskers, who will be on hand all along Oxford Rd with their own fun and curious facts.

And don’t forget you can see our scientists and engineers in action at a range of exciting events taking place during The Manchester Science Festival.
