My 2009 Manchester Science Festival project also got a bit of coverage…
Manchester Science Festival – Does it rain more at the weekend?
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!
- Manchester Evening News, this was the page 3 lead article
- Guardian Science Weekly podcast, I was the main guest on the podcast
- 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)
