Science @ Central

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Central Library is a mysterious, secret-filled place. Who knows what hidden knowledge lies between the pages of its many books? Read up on the spirit of scientific investigation and come find out for yourself, discovering how science has affected the story-lined corridors of Manchester Central Library over the centuries. Get elbow deep in moonrocks and meteorites, dig around in our archives, meet a real-life conservator, learn the fascinating history of science in the city and get hands-on with the collections (as well as some Lego robots) in the afternoon.
