FLS Open Day

26 Jun

This Saturday 30th there is going to be a Community Open Day in the University of Manchester Michael Smith Building.  This happens to be the building where I spend most of my waking life attempting to get my experiments to work and my cells that grow in dishes  to behave (they rarely do). On Saturday, the atmosphere is going to be very different in here though*, as the Faculty of Life Sciences is opening the doors to the lab and inviting everyone to come in and have a look around. If you’re interested in science, what scientists get up to or just fancy a day out doing something different – come on down, the price is right (it’s totally FREE)!
Along side a chance to look round the labs and get a feel for the cutting edge research that is done here at The University of Manchester, there will be loads of fun activities including:

  •    Painting with maggots
  •    Making edible cells out of cookies
  •    Meeting live amphibians
  •    Learning how leeches are used in medicine
  •    Finding out how the heart works

There’ll also be a tent for the lit’uns with creepy crawly crafts and face painting. The Michael Smith Building is number 71 on this map, or you can follow the footprints on the pavement from the Manchester Museum.

Hope to see you there…

*more fun
