Have your pupils entered the NWBLT science competition yet? If not, why not set it for homework over the half term break. The closing date for entries is 6th November 2015 and the winner receives an iPad mini and cash for their school. To enter the competition pupils need to email firstname.lastname@example.org on “Why I want to be a Scientist” in no more than 500 words. Please make sure your pupils include their name, school name and whether they are in Year 7 or Year 8.
There is also plenty science for all the family to get involved with at Science Spectacular at Manchester Museum and Whitworth Hall on Saturday 31st October 11am – 4pm, as part of Manchester Science Festival.
This full-on family science day means a chance for all budding scientists to enjoy over 40 interactive experiments and demonstrations.
Create a mini tornado, snuggle up to some creepy crawlies, talk to scientists and crack secret DNA and computer codes, play the imitation brain game, explore science on a microchip, build a world of fungus and work with mini robots.
And remember to look out for our Science Buskers along Oxford Road.
We hope you have a fun half term!
