Bad Bugs: Zombie Outbreak! - Play and Read

BS 1.22, Business School

What would happen if there were really a virus that created zombies? How quickly would it spread across the city? Would scientists be able to contain the outbreak? … and would you and your friends survive? Join Man Met academics this Halloween for a workshop exploring the fiction and the science of zombies. We will examine popular stories about zombies, including Darren Shan’s Zom-B series and Charlie Higson’s The Enemy, investigating these imaginary scenarios with scientific models. You will also take part in a zombie game testing your survival skills: will you make it out alive or will you succumb to the undead?

This workshop is suitable for children and young people aged 11 or above.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

This event is part of the Gothic Manchester Festival 2019
