My 2009 Manchester Science Festival project also got a bit of coverage…

Manchester Science Festival – Does it rain more at the weekend?

Me on Channel M and North West Tonight!

I organised a project for MSF09 looking at rain. I got some people around Manchester involved by taking their own rainfall measurements and thinking about what they mean. Here’s the project webpage – Rain project. I also did a little bit of research to back this project up and this was covered quite a bit in the media:

  • BBC North West Tonight, I was on the sofa talking to Gordon Burns!
  • South Manchester Reporter
  • MEN CityLife
  • BBC Radio Manchester (live interview on breakfast show)
  • BBC Radio Cumbria (recorded interview)
  • Key 103FM (recorded interview)
  • Real Radio (recorded interview)
