Make, do, hack and more...

Well this year’s Manchester Science Festival programme has well and truly launched! We hope you’ve already browsed through the programme and found lots of event for you to go to. If not you can browse the programme on the Festival website.

We’ve themed events around strands such as Family Fun and Join the Conversation. This year we have some brand new strands to help you get to grips with the brilliant programme.

Science After Dark is an opportunity for adults to relax and enjoy some events on the weekends and after work. Immerse yourself in the beautiful 1830 warehouse at MOSI and enjoy our series of science-inspired films. Head to the Lowry and join the Festival of the Spoken Nerd crew for some laughs. Explore issues surrounding organ donation at a performance at Contact Theatre.

Our series of events in Make, Do and Hack invites you to make, do and play... and leave the kids at home! Paint with bacteria, make robots or create your very own USB microscope.

Explore our Arts meet Science programme... there’ll be a Field of Jeans exploring new technology to purify the air around us, a palace made of milk teeth provoking discussion around stem cells and donating body parts for art, and the Osmosis Machine, playing with a gloop material forming beautiful shapes.

We invite you to play, create and explore science at this year’s Festival. We believe we have created a fantastic programme for families, young people and adults full of hands-on activities, performance, film, discussions and more. We hope there are plenty of events that you’ll love. Enjoy!
