With the launch of the Manchester Science Festival 2013 website earlier today, we thought we should let you know what our plans are for this year. We've taken part in the last two festivals and we're back this year with not one but two events!

The Barometer Podcast LIVE: Is breathing bad for you?

When: Tuesday 29th October 2013. Doors open at 1830 for a 1900 start. Refreshments available from the bar beforehand. Finish at 2000.
Registration: The event is free but we ask that you register for the event via Eventbrite.

Following on from our previous live episode at the festival in 2011, which you can view/listen here, we'll be producing a live episode of the podcast in front of an audience. Our topic will be air quality and the effect it has on our health. We'll guide you through the issues surrounding this important aspect of atmospheric science combined with a mix of audience participation, demonstrations and interviews. We'll discuss how air pollution affects our daily lives, whether that is at home, at work or out and about in the city and countryside. You'll also be able to ask our panel any burning questions you might have about air quality.

Join us for what should be an interesting tour of the fascinating science of air quality.

Science Spectacular

When: Saturday 2nd November 2013. 1100-1600.
Registration: None required. Free entry.

The University of Manchester's Science Spectacular returns with a showcase of the amazing science and scientists from the University. The Barometer Podcast team are working with other colleagues from the Centre for Atmospheric Science to demonstrate some of the fundamental principles that govern our atmosphere. We'll be covering clouds, fog, ice crystals and the general weather in Manchester. You'll also be able to build your very own barometer using a straw, a balloon and a rather fetching Barometer Podcast coffee mug which you can take home with you on the day.

Join us for a fun packed day of science!
