Manchester Science Festival is set to return to the Science and Industry Museum next year, and it looks set to be better than ever. Following the reopening of the Museum in September, the dates have been set for the return of this popular science festival from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 February 2021. The festival will offer a jam-packed programme exploring fascinating ideas around climate change and how science and technology could create a solution to one of the world’s biggest challenges. As well as offering immersive arts, food, performance and fashion events, the programme – which is due to be unveiled in full in late autumn – will also offer science lovers in the family the chance to discuss critical climate issues with leading scientists during debates and events throughout the festival.

The Royal Photographic Society is showing their support to this cause by offering the opportunity for budding local photographers to become their next Science Photographer of the Year, introducing a new sub-category based on climate change for its Science Photographer of the Year competition. Applications are running now until the December 4 2020, so science and photography lovers alike should get their snaps of science in action and its impact in our every day lives in soon. Pop down to the Manchester Science festival next year for a day or two filled with fun, events and, of course, science!

Fri 12 Feb - Sun 21 Feb, Science and Industry Museum,
