Pi: Platform for Investigation at Science and Industry Museum, Castlefield 10 August 2019 Entrance is free

Pi: Platform for Investigation is the Science and Industry Museum’s monthly event where families can discover together the cutting-edge research that’s happening right now and how it affects our lives.

Each month is a different theme from the world of science and technology, with this month’s event looking at, fittingly, the sun.

How can you use the sun to tell the time? How can you make rainbows without rain? And what kind of sun can you hold in your hand? Head to the museum this weekend to find out the answer to all of these questions and more. All of this is of course inspired by the Science and Industry Museum’s major new exhibition, The Sun.

With fun, hands-on activities for all ages in a truly unique setting, Pi: Platform for Investigation provides an opportunity to meet real-life scientists and find out about the latest discoveries.

Sounds like a winner to us.
