British Science Week 2015: Tell us what switched you onto science! #My1stExperiment

What was the first experiment which sparked your scientific curiosity? What did you do? Did you realise you wanted to become a scientist? It might be the first experiment that you did as a child or perhaps the first experiment you did once you started studying science at university.

Next week is British Science Week – and we will be welcoming over 1000 school pupils onto campus for 4 days of super science. In the run up to British Science Week (13 – 22 March 2015, see www.britishscienceweek.org/) we are asking staff and students from the University of Manchester and beyond to tell us about the first experiment which sparked their interest in science.

Please use #My1stExperiment and #UoM so we can identify your tweets. We’ll be retweeting as many as we can from @UoMSchools – and sharing the tweets with teachers and pupils at our Science Fair from 17 – 20 March.

Please share the word with your colleagues and students, and if you have any questions contact me on emma.lewis@manchester.ac.uk
