Manchester Science Festival 2011 Round Up

Microbiology and Art Exhibition PreviewIt’s been another great Manchester Science Festival this year, and MadLab has been lucky to host 6 events. We kicked off with a preview of Microbiology & Art, an exhibition of work inspired by microbiology, ran our 3rd Robot Hackday, celebrated Alan Turing, held the first ever DIYBIO UK Summit, and rounded off with a Science Jamboree and tea party with Teawitter.
We’ve had a full 9 days holding various science related activities, all with a MadLab twist.

Over the festival period we’ve had over 200 people come through our doors hacking robots from old toys, discussing short stories from modern science, getting to know the global DIYBIO community, eat cake, make instant ice cream all with a generous dose of practical workshops.

We’re still in the process of editing video and getting more photos and comments, but for the moment, take a look at our collection.

It’s been great to be part of this wonderful festival, and we’ll already thinking of what to do next year.
