Science Spectacular

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Join our scientists for a fun-filled day of challenges, experiments, and interactive demonstrations. Explore the science of bubbles, dance with robots, get hands-on with bugs, and fungi and land yourself some moon rock. With more than 40 interactive science activities on offer, it really is an event for all the family. What’s more, you’ll also get to chat with the amazing scientists and engineers behind some of the world’s greatest discoveries.
