For the attention of schools in Greater Manchester

The Great Science Share for Schools Flagship Event will take place at the Whitworth Hall, The University of Manchester. Booking is now closed. This is a ticket-only event.

The central event will take place between 12.30 and 15.00 on Tuesday 19th June, only ticketed individuals and schools will be allowed entry. The event is free, and primary schools are eligible to send one group of 8 junior-aged children and 2 teachers (or one teacher and one teaching assistant).  

It involve each school preparing: 

- children bringing a table-top science investigation that they share with others

- the investigation should be replicable in a short space of time to a range of people coming to your table
