Pi: Platform for Investigation
Pi: Platform for Investigation is a monthly event where families discover cutting edge research that's happening right now in and around Manchester and the North West.
Each month our partners from universities, research centres and other organisations take over our purpose-built high-tech platform, complete with computer ports and experiment tables, to introduce visitors of all ages to important innovations via conversation and fun.
Next month's Pi: Seeing Life in a New Light – Saturday 15 July
How do we see the unseeable? How can laser beams be used as tweezers and scissors? How are scientists shining a light on cancer?
Find out all this and more at July's Platform for Investigation, where scientists from the University of St Andrews will show you how to trap light and make a pinhole camera. Plus, see if you can beat a laser at detecting counterfeit food and drink.
This Platform for Investigation is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
