Manchester Science Festival’s autumn outing

Date Posted: 08/09/2012

The annual Manchester Science Festival, produced by the Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester, is this year running from the 27th October  until the 4th November.

The festival programme features over 100 varied events across Greater Manchester, from comedy and dance to art and hands-on activities.

A cutting-edge blend of art, science and family events, groups can expect to see anything from fashion designer Helen Storey’s jeans that purify the air, to Gina Czarnecki’s exhibition of sculptures created from discarded body parts.

From the Higgs Boson particle and the miracle material graphene, to climate change and the science of truth and love, specialists from across the UK will talk about the hottest topics and the most cutting-edge science taking place in this country and beyond.

This year’s festival also features results and workshops for the mass participation project Turing’s Sunflowers, which continued the work of Alan Turing’s study of mathematical patterns in nature with the help of over 11,000 sunflowers grown by people around the world.
