Saturday Science: Nanoscience In Action

Join enthusiastic local scientists and engineers a with fascinating demonstrations, fun hands-on activities and informal chat.

Make your own graphene like a Nobel Prize winner, using sticky tape and pencil lead! This is something that researchers continue to do today in the clean-room laboratories at the University of Manchester

Try out a Lego model of a Magnetic Force Microscope - a sophisticated and state-of-the-art piece of equipment to measure the magnetic properties of materials on a nano-scale (a billionth of a metre).

Get your hands on hydrophobic sand - a substance that can repel water! You can also find out more about how clothes can be made hydrophobic so that they won’t get wet.

Although Saturday Science sessions are designed to be suitable for all ages, they usually contain elements specifically for children and families.
