Messy Science

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

This event is a complete and utter mess. We’ve got tabletop volcanoes, biology experiments that have run wild, head-to-head competitions with know-it-all maths lecturers and of course: space rocket mice. Yup, you read that right. You’ll be figuring out how to send mice into space. After all, science is all about messing around with things, so come and join us for a series of interactive events and exhibits designed to show you how to do exactly that.
