Graphene is the fascinating material that's been the focus of a lot of media attention, since its rediscovery and isolation here in Manchester. The Museum of Science and Industry currently has an exhibition charting its history and discussing its future.
- Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester, 14:00, 25th of June 2017
The Museum of Science and Industry is a bastion of Manchester culture that needs no introduction. Entry is free. We'll meet in the foyer at 14:00 on the Sunday afternoon for the exhibition itself.
Before and After
Some of us will be there a little early, and will gather at the nearby real ale pub The Cask from 13:00, before wandering across the road to the museum for 14:00.
The exhibition closes at 17:00. Once we're done with the exhibition, we'll wander down to the Atlas bar on Deansgate - an extremely very well stocked gin bar. From there we'll go on to decide our plans for dinner - which, in the usual Young Mensa North tradition, will probably involve a Wetherspoons.

The museum is very close to the Deansgate tram stop, and a ten minute walk from Salford Central railway station. If you're driving, there's on-street parking in front of the museum itself, as well as several NCP car parks nearby.
If you don't fancy the exhibition and want to catch up with us later, the easiest thing is to keep in touch on Telegram - but we'll also keep the Facebook event updated with our movements after we head to Atlas.
