Tiny Science - Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July

Manchester Arndale shopping centre (Exchange Court), 11am - 4pm

Delve into the tiny nanoworld and discover ‘really small science’ with researchers from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. Take part in hands-on, interactive experiments alongside expert engineers and scientists. Clean ‘dirty water’ using nanoholes, make your own nanojelly out of nanonets and move around like nanoparticles in gases, liquids and solids. Then explore how Manchester scientists produced graphene, the world’s first 2D material, and have a try yourself.

Please consult Manchester Arndale's facilities guide for accessibility information.

Up next: Wonder Materials - Saturday 27 August

What is graphene? How is it made? Will it change your life?

Join us and researchers from the National Graphene Institute for a day of hands-on nanoscale activities. Have a go at producing your own graphene and help us construct a layer of the wonder material across the Revolution Manchester gallery, and predict its future uses.
