3-Minute Science: The 2013 Manchester Schools' Science Documentary Competition - Winner announced!
Congratulations to Manchester Creative and Media Academy, winners of the 2013 3-Minute Science Competition! The school submitted a creative and humourous video exploring the role of Jodrell Bank and the science that is done there. See the video here.
The Manchester Branch has a firm relationship with the Manchester Museum supporting the monthly Big Saturdays with a science stand to match the theme. Branch volunteers have delivered hands on activities at a number of festivals and celebrations including the Kendal Calling Festival and Live From Jodrell where they delighted the audience with their home-made guitars and carrot kazoos. For Manchester Science Festival 2012 the Branch held 'Sensored Science', an adult event with comedy, live band, pub quiz and maggot experiments!
