Going Underground

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Science comes to Stockport. Or rather, to just beneath it… Join us on a tour of the town’s famous air raid shelters, exploring secret tunnels and meeting microbiologists, radar engineers and nurses along the way. You’ll get an insight into WW2 nursing and pre-antibiotic techniques, the rise of antibiotic resistance, alternative therapies, the science of radar and its evolution into modern-day smart security screening.
