The Manchester branch of the British Science Association are running an event for Scout groups in Manchester during National Science and Engineering week. We’re looking for volunteers to help us out on the day.
What is the event?
Manchester Scouts Science day. On the day the scouts will get to try a series of simple science experiments and activities – from extracting DNA from fruit to making a plastic-cup speaker. The activities will contribute towards a scouts science badge.
Sunday 16 March 2014 and then repeated on Sunday 23 March 2014, 10-4pm
The event is based at the Manchester Museum on Oxford Road.
How can you help?
We need volunteers for both days to man each activity and explain some of the science behind it. All the activities are really simple, and you’ll be working with small groups of between 5-10 scouts (11-14 year olds).
No previous experience is needed as everything will be explained on the day.
We also need people to help with general organisation on the day, and if anyone is handy with a camera, someone to take pictures would also be great.
Please email us at BritSciAssoc@manchesterscience.co.uk if you would like to volunteer on either day (or both!). We need lots of volunteers to make the day a success, so I hope you can help.
