Community Open Day
Secrets of the life scientists revealed
Life scientists will reveal some of the strangest secrets of their field when the Faculty opens its doors to the public this July.
Come and take a look around our laboratories, have a go at our experiments, and use our million pound microscopes. Kids and adults alike can get hands-on with creepy crawlies, find out how the heart works, make edible cells out of cookies, and involve themselves in many more activities at the Faculty of Life Sciences Community Open Day.
This year’s Community Open Day will take place on Saturday 6 July. Activities will include creating paintings with maggots and other insects, making DNA bracelets, learning how leeches were used in medicine, and taking the opportunity to find out about the research undertaken in the Faculty. Our scientists will be on hand to talk to you about what they do, so that you can learn all about what goes on in the Faculty, from cancer research to brain imaging.
The event attracted around 700 visitors last year and is a fun, family-friendly event for the local community.
This free event will take place in the Michael Smith Building, The University of Manchester, from 11:00-15:00. No need to book - just drop in. Suitable for all ages. Free Parking.
More details will follow shortly.
