Meet the Explainers from the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester and explore how ideas can change the world through fun demonstrations and activities.
Discover the story of where science met industry and the modern world began, from steam power and the cotton industry, to computing and cutting-edge scientific research.
The session takes you on a journey through Mancunian innovation from the beginnings of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway to the exciting possibilities of Graphene, the thinnest material ever.
Then get a chance to ask your own questions about the museum, the things you have learned from the session or even what it means to be an ‘Explainer’ in the Q&A.
The biennial Manchester Science Festival is produced by the Science and Industry Museum, part of the Science Museum Group
