CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Science Spectacular – our annual university-wide family fun science fair – returns for the Manchester Science Festival 2018, and we hope you can join us.

Science Spectacular is a key event in the University’s calendar of public engagement events. It provides an interactive showcase for the exciting research taking place across the University and offers the opportunity to engage with audiences of all ages. Running since 2011, we typically attract around 2,000 visitors and have featured prominently as a highlight of MSF.
