May half term is always the Science and Industry Museum’s big celebration of making, engineering, crafting and creating, culminating with our festival of making, Makefest.
Although the museum is currently closed and Makefest cannot go ahead as normal, we still want to engage our audiences and encourage as many people as possible to get creative at home.
So this year we are bringing Makefest to our social media channels using #Makefestathome and we would love you to get involved. From 25-29 May, we will be sharing photos and videos of things we have made at home and challenging everyone to do the same.
Each day will have a new themed challenge, inspired by Science Museum group learning resources. You can find out more here.
We’d love it if you could join in, make something and share photos and videos of what you’ve made with us on Twitter (@sim_manchester), Instagram (@scienceandindustrymuseum) or on our Facebook event (scienceandindustrymuseum) using the hashtag.
