The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) are offering a free-to-exhibit opportunity to have an exhibition stand or run public engagement activities as part of their Into The Blue (Science We Live and Breathe) showcase, which is taking place in Manchester during October half-term (25-29 October 2016). Visitors to the event will be a broad public audience, primarily focused on families and young people.

The environmental science showcase will comprise about 40 stands, as well as stage and discussion space, both inside and outside an aircraft hangar. Through the exhibition stands, talks, debates and discussions, the event will engage visitors with the wonders of the natural world and the process of doing research.

For more information about the project, application criteria, FAQs and how to apply please view the application guidelines on www.nerc.ac.uk/latest/events/blue/. Applications can be made using the online form by 16:00 on Friday 1 July 2016.
