After School Science Club: COLOUR
Museum of Science and Industry, Liverpool Road, Manchester (map)
Saturday 29th October 2016
For 2016 we put together another amazing science club as part of Manchester Science Festival. There was no ball pool this year (sad face), but our theme for Science Club this time was COLOUR. The event took place in the Revolution Manchester Gallery at the Museum, and we had a giant paint wall you could join in and paint. Our talks and demos were themed around the colours of the rainbow, and there were colourful snacks, puzzles and goodies. It was totally spectrum-tacular.
- Stand-up Mathematician and Numberphile/YouTube legend Matt Parker, bringing the maths
- TV guest expert/radio presenter and UCL inorganic chemistry professor Andrea Sella, who'll be mixing up colourful chemicals
- Science writer, presenter and The Naked Scientists' resident neuroscience expert Ginny Smith, on the neuroscience of colour vision
- Atmospheric scientist and Bright Club performer Sophie Haslett, on the science of rainbows
We also had our usual hostess with the mostest, award-winning mathematician Katie Steckles, and a team of science buskers bringing hands-on science demos to the tables. Plus our usual competitions and prizes, freebies and good company.
