On Sun 7 Jul, the Science and Industry Museum hosts a fun-filled day-long festival exploring the fascinating science of Eid traditions, delivered in partnership with MACFEST and the Rochdale Science Initiative.

Visitors are invited to get hands on with an action-packed array of free workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations for the whole family to enjoy.

Kids and parents alike can turn trash into tunes by creating unique noise machines from scavenged and upcycled materials with Noisy Toys, before setting off on a journey across the universe to discover the contributions of Asian and Muslim scientists to space exploration with SciTech.

Elsewhere, The Grange School will be on hand with a series of interactive experiments and demonstrations inspired by the innovative genius of celebrated 8th century chemist and alchemist, Jabir ibn Hayyan, known as the ‘father of chemistry’ throughout modern human history.
Located around the museum, Science Made Simple unveils the wonder of scientific exploration with an assortment of mesmerising experiments, pop-up performances and even ‘science busking’.

Throughout the day, Rochdale Youth Service encourages visitors to get crafty in their festive workshop and create special Eid decorations, paper chains, lanterns, mosques and crescent moon and star ornaments.
