Hands on science at Manchester Metropolitan University

Ever wondered what muscles sound like? Can you tell the difference between a human and a computer? Want to play with magic sand? Interested in forensics and crime scenes?

This fun-packed day of real science is for you and all your family. Enjoy extraordinary experiments, use the latest lab technology and get up-close and personal with real scientists and technicians. There’s robots, racing cars and even an ant colony! Activity stations will be running throughout the day, so drop in anytime between the hours of 11 and 5 and stay for as long as you like...

Light refreshments available for purchase, or bring your own picnic lunch!

As well as all of the fabulous fun stuff there are also practical workshop sessions on "Build a Morse code communication device" and "Make your own DNA necklace" running throughout the day (booking required details on the website below).
