Manchester Museum of Science and Industry

As part of the week with Into University, we visited the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. It was a fantastic trip enjoyed by all. We had three different talks/shows which were all interesting and informative. The first was all about the industrial revolution and they made Mr Macleod dress up as a lady – unfortunately no photos were taken! Then we learnt about the cotton trade. Did you know at one point Manchester produced 70% of the worlds cotton? And finally we had the show which pitted robots against humans. Although the robots were impressive, humans came out on top. We also got a time to walk around the transport museum and play with the experiments on the top floor. A great day was had by all.
