Outreach - British Science Week 2024-03-13 at 13.05.11 (3)

British Science Week at the Manchester Museum

Royce returned to the Manchester Museum to participate in two days of fun and educational outreach activities focusing on material sciences and engineering for British Science Week 2024.

This year, Royce sent visitors hunting around the Museum to find all the Materials Science stands and fill up a Materials Passport, with stickers from Name, University of Manchester and MIDAS areas. Over 500 students and visitors were engaged with the help of volunteers, including PhD and technical staff affiliated with Royce.

Alongside the passport, Royce activities included using a Charpy tester to break chocolate bars, demonstrating fracture mechanics, and hydrogen activities including a prototype car and map.
