Longsight Library Takeover – this Saturday!

On Saturday, the MadLab team are heading over to Longsight Library to host a day of making, coding and creating. Primarily aimed at women and girls, MadLab will be teaming up with Manchester Girl Geeks to showcase a range of fun tech and science-themed activities.

Resident DIY biologists Noah Most and Asa Calow will show you how to extract DNA from strawberries, create yeast balloons and make ricotta cheese from milk and lemons! Visitors will also be able to create their own ‘Brushbots’ (mini robots) and take part in workshops from Arduino to Raspberry Pi to making banana pianos.

Brushbots!

The day will be a real hands-on experience and a fun introduction to the world of science and maker technologies. No prior skills are required and the event is open to all ages. All you need is a little bit of curiosity – the MadLab team are on hand to provide everything else.

The Longsight Library Takeover will take place this Saturday 15th Feb at Longsight Library from 10am-4pm.  Visitors are welcome to pop in and join in at any point throughout the day. If you miss that date, we’ll be doing it all again on the 22nd Feb!

See you there!
