August 2019 - Stalybridge

This was our first event, held on 3rd August 2019. Over 400 people of all ages came to the event, including our local MP. The day featured four Science Zones (Wind, Green, Light and Life), a planetarium and a Lego Mindstorms Robot workshop.

The event received a Commendation award in the 2020 Making a Difference Awards from the University of Manchester.

The success of the day was instrumental in winning a grant from the Scientists in Congregations program to set up Believing Science to drive through the next batch of Wonder Days and associated events during 2022.
