I was lucky enough recently to take some of my students to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.
And loved this TV - reminded us of the WonkaVision TV in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!!
I just loved the fact that there is so much beauty and craft in a science museum! The students loved it, many of them hadnt been to a museum before, which is a shame as they are aged 16-19. All agreed that science could be interesting and fun!
The museum backs onto Granada Studios where Coronation Street is filmd. Sadly the set is no longer open to visitors (it used to be a brilliant day out I remember going there in the late 80s/early 90s) so this signed copy of a Corrie script had to do:
The museum is well worth a visit and the best thing is, its free! So if you are around the Manchester area over the hols, and you have young kids/teenagers, give it a go!
