Volunteers needed for Behind the Scenes of Manchester Science

(19 June 2016)

As part of The University of Manchester’s response to the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF), many areas of the University will be open to the public in a ‘Behind the Scenes of Manchester Science’ event, giving people the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes.

The Faculties of Humanities, Medical and Human Sciences, and Life Sciences will open up their labs on 27July from 10am to 4pm, with activities based around Oxford Road. Manchester Museum is acting as the hub for all activity on the day and will host the registration desks and meeting points for the tours, as well as table top activities taking place throughout the museum itself.

To support this event, 25 volunteers are needed, who will provide a friendly, positive and knowledgeable welcome to all participants. Specific roles on the day will vary but in general will consist of acting as a walking guide to take attendees between labs and buildings, and providing general information to participants about the schedule, programme, locations, directions, facilities, etc. Volunteers do not need to be available all day, as specific time slots can be agreed. A full briefing will be provided.  

  • If you can spare some time between 9am and 5pm on Wednesday, 27 July 2016 please contact Claire Lloyd
