Welcome to the Manchester Science Festival 2013. Today we are thrilled to launch our programme for this year’s Festival, taking place from Thursday 24 October to Sunday 3 November. Check out our website for all the information or pick up a brochure from MOSI or loads of venues about the city.
You will see that this year we have our usual packed family programme of hands-on activities and workshops to inspire and engage budding young scientists across Greater Manchester and beyond. There is also an eclectic mix of events for discerning adults looking for alternative science (and technology and engineering and maths) entertainment: we’ve got films, plays, an art exhibition, comedy, some special brains-themed events and more. We’re also launching our new citizen science experiment, #Hooked, where you can get involved to help scientists unlock the secrets as to what makes music catchy.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be blogging about different aspects of the programme as we gear up for the events. And if you are a blogger yourself – we need you! We are looking for bloggers (or aspiring bloggers) to help us write about, document and spread the word of our Festival events. We are holding a special bloggers event at the Brains: The Mind as Matter exhibition at MOSI on Tuesday 24 September. You can apply and find out more details here.
Manchester Science Festival is back for its seventh year, proudly produced by MOSI, supported by our headline sponsor Siemans and major sponsors Electricity Northwest, University of Salford and Waters. The Festival is brought to you by a unique group of partners consisting of the universities of Bolton, Manchester, MMU and Salford, the Institute of Physics, the British Science Association, Sound of Science and many other supporters. We can’t wait to hear what you think of this year’s programme.
