Schools and Outreach

At Manchester Metropolitan University, we offer curriculum-informed sessions to nurture the tech and science talent of tomorrow

We enjoy strong links with schools and colleges in Greater Manchester and further afield, and we invite students onto our campus to introduce them to the possibilities of further student study and future careers.

Not all scientists work in labs and wear safety glasses. It’s important for students to see this and feel that science is accessible to all. 

We offer a range of activities that can be tailored for student interests and age groups. Our sessions link directly to GCSE, A-Level and BTEC curricula, which can support teachers in delivering content that may require specialist equipment.

As our staff are teaching full time, sessions will primarily take place on Wednesday afternoons. However, with enough notice, we may be able to accommodate additional needs.

Inspiring young people for more than 20 years

We have been visiting schools and colleges, delivering inspirational talks and leading workshops in computing and mathematics for more than 20 years.

Our aim is to encourage more students to consider further study in computer science and mathematics, and to introduce them to career paths in artificial intelligence, big data, business, computational modelling, programming, the Internet of Things and much more.

We offer a programme of free talks aimed at year 11 and 13 students at schools and colleges within a 20-mile radius of Manchester city centre.

However, if your school or college is further afield, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
