Manchester Science Festival

Polymers, a valuable resource will again be part of this year's bigger and better Manchester Science Festival, entertaining the region from 23 - 31 October.  Over 200 exciting events will take place across Greater Manchester during half term. There will be something for everyone - from bee knitting to chocolate making, stand-up comedy to workshops, talks and demonstrations - and even an awe-inspiring trip into the mysteries of the Universe!

The Manchester Polymer Group will run a Workshop at the Museum of Science and Industry over two days with the objective of demonstrating the benefits that polymers can bring to the society of today.

MPG will include a display of samples of several products made from recycled plastic and a supervised demo of moulding new articles from used plastic milk bottles and drinks bottles.

The issue of plastic waste and litter will also be covered by involving the workshop participants in the decisions that they can make to influence this issue.

The successful ‘Ask the Polymer Expert' session will also be repeated with the answers being posted on the Festival website.

Manchester Science Festival is now in its triumphant fourth year and has quickly become the most popular science festival in the UK! As well as exploring all aspects of science, this year the Festival celebrates the International Year of Biodiversity. The Festival brings together universities, museums, unusual venues and community spaces to inspire people from across the region and learn more about why science is amazing, great fun and an essential, accessible part of everyday life.
