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.

We are passionate about sharing our cutting-edge research with the community

Science outreach is a key part of what we do in the Department of Natural Sciences.

We collaborate with local museums and galleries, as well as national scientific bodies, to develop exciting hands-on research experiences. We can adapt of research for a range of audiences and are happy to discuss ideas for new outreach projects.

We also provide a range of outreach opportunities for primary, secondary and post-16 students. Our staff and students support curricula through events such as in-class talks, live experiments, after school seminars and careers events. In some instances, remote support is more effective, such as email contact and teaching resources.
