Call for University of Manchester Science Buskers – postgrads and undergrads
Postgraduates and Undergraduates, from across all subjects at the University of Manchester, if you love science and engaging with the general public then we want to hear from you!
The University of Manchester is recruiting Science Buskers to support events taking place during this year’s Manchester Science Festival (#MSF15).
We’re holding an information and training session on Monday 5 October to help you decide…
What is Science Busking?
Science Busking involves approaching people, showing them intriguing and entertaining science demonstrations or tricks – much like street magicians! As a Science Busker, you will help to enthuse and engage with hundreds of visitors at our family fun science fair event – Science Spectacular, bringing the fun and wonder of hands-on science to Oxford Rd! And you will get to meet and work with like-minded people and enjoy a positive and memorable experience.
Note you don’t have to be a scientist to be a science busker!
Whether this is your first foray or you are already experienced in the art of science communication we want to hear from you!
