CELEBRATION: City in the Community gets scientific.

More than 700 local children came together to celebrate science at the City Football Academy as part of the Greater Manchester Great Science Share.

Hosted by City in the Community and in conjunction with the University of Manchester, the event saw pupils from 70 different schools celebrate the sharing of science and education.

Supported by the University of Manchester’s Science and Engineering Education Hub, the programme was designed and developed by children for children.

Providing a creative and exciting platform for the youngsters to present their own ideas, the topics up for discussion included, ‘What makes the best extreme sport helmet?’ and ‘What’s the science behind the sport we play?’. 

“City in the Community were delighted to team up with the University of Manchester to deliver the Great Science Share,” said Health Officer, Olivia Loughlin.

“This event has provided an incredible opportunity for children to come together and learn about science in an exciting and creative way and it was great to see pupils encouraging one another to share their own experiences and ideas.”

In addition to their individual projects, pupils explored an inflatable Manchester Museum, gazed at the stars in the planetarium and took part in ‘The Great Science Grove’, a bespoke workshop combining science and art.  

“This year the children presented some wonderful and engaging ideas, which they shared with each other, added Dr Lynne Binachi from the University of Manchester.

“To hear children talking science in the way they did filled the adults with awe. This was truly a day for them!

“What makes The Great Science Share so unique is that it’s run by children for children – it’s their science stories being shared and primary science being valued and visible.”
