The 10 day schools tour finished this week and was a HUGE success.
In the period leading up to the festival, a range of key partner organisations delivered a series of major one-day events in each Greater Manchester local authority. The pupils had chance to particupate in an interactive, demonstration-packed lecture by a high-profile scientist; a carousel of interactive activities; and a “hot news” workshop held by the Manchester Museum.
During the workshop part of the “How Science Works” events, groups of students produced exhibits based on a hot science topic which is in the news. The best of these will receive a prize for their school (kindly provided by Phillip Harris) and the chance to have their work exhibited at Museum of Science and Industry during the Festival. See our listings section for further details.
