Manchester science poster competition

Friday, 1 February, 2013 - 12:00 to Tuesday, 12 March, 2013 - 17:00

Imagine you are part of the team planning and designing the first manned mission to Mars. Your job is to investigate just one problem of the mission, and come up with an idea that might solve it. You’re asked to create a poster, no bigger than A1-sized, to explain the problem and your idea. The idea can be anything you like, but it must be based on real-science. The competition is for Years 7, 8, or 9. We can accept both individual and team entries. All Posters must be received by us by 4pm 12th March 2013.  You can hand your posters in through participating schools and STEM clubs.
