The Science Hive: Manchester

Science at all levels has a huge impact on our lives, from policies to medicines and everything in-between. Therefore, here at The Hive we want to open the door to the ivory tower and show everyone around, connecting people with the science that shapes their lives.

  • We seek to achieve that by promoting openness about science in society and affirming science as a prime cultural force through engaging and inspiring adults and young people directly with science and technology, and their implications.
  • Established in 1831, the British Science Association organises major initiatives across the UK, including the annual British Science Festival, National Science¬†& Engineering Week, programmes of regional and local events, and an extensive programme for young people in schools and colleges.
  • The British Science Association is a charity established under Royal Charter and governed by a Council which forms the Board of Trustees. It is registered with the Charity Commission (number 212479) and with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (number SC039236).

Here at Hive HQ we want to create an environment where scientists feel supported and comfortable talking about their work and where the public can engage with current research and related issues, without being bombarded by jargon.


Our group of volunteers run a range of ‘hands-on’ events throughout the year aimed at all ages and interests (for examples of our past work see here). We also hope to expand our corner of the internet, forming a hub for scientific discussion in and around Manchester. If you would like to know more about our work, don’t hesitate to email us on bsamanchester@hotmail.com, follow us on twitter @Sci_Manchester or, if you are interested in getting involved, check out our volunteering page.
