We would like to highlight the annual Science Festival which, this year, is taking place in Manchester. The festival is of particular interest to primary age children, and could help parents and teachers learn how to engage their children in everyday science. It could be a useful tool for parents to learn more about science, and learn how to make it interesting.
Many of the events are free, and most only incur a nominal cost. The festival takes place for ten days, from the 22nd of October until the 1st of November. A couple of the free language-related events include:
“Telling tales”, held at Manchester central library from 9am until 5pm on everyday of the festival, it highlights the troubles faced from Social communication disorder and explores this in a unique and creative manner.
“Dissecting Language”, held at the Museum for Science and Industry on Liverpool Road. With hands-on experiments, this event explores the physics behind speech and the reasons for having regional dialects. It is held every day of the event, check the website below for exact times.
With these events and many more, the Science festival will definitely be worth a visit, so why not pop along?
