The University of Manchester is opening its doors to the public to reveal some of their amazing research on life sciences and medicine.
Come and take a look around our laboratories, have a go at our experiments, and use our million pound microscopes. Kids and adults alike can get hands-on with fun science activities and meet creepy crawlies, all as part of our Community Open Day.
Activities will include building medicines from beach balls, creating paintings with maggots and seeing amazing medical artefacts from the past. There will be opportunity to find out about biological and medical research that the University of Manchester undertakes. Our researchers will be on hand to talk to you about what they do, from studying viruses and DNA through to understanding how babies develop.
Last year, this family-friendly event attracted around 700 visitors from the local community.
This free event will take place on Saturday 28 June in the Michael Smith Building (just off Dover Street, M13 9PL), The University of Manchester, from 11am – 3pm. There is no need to book - just drop in.
Suitable for all ages.
