In partnership with the award-winning bluedot Festival, the event was specially designed for budding scientists and tech buffs alike and centred around GAIA – the huge Earth installation by artist Luke Jerram.
Kicking off with early morning yoga classes taking place directly underneath the award-winning artwork, the programme included two interactive tech shows - Who wants to be a Superhero and Music to Your Ears - drone racing, science-themed games and activities and creative craft sessions.
Standing 9ft tall, BounceBot and his scientist controller also entertained crowds with his energetic interactive performances whilst face painters got creative with space and science themed designs.
Earlier in the week we officially launched Glasshouse, inviting press to an evening of entertainment and introducing them to the new space. The event included a light show and DJ set by Lost Colours and an energetic performance from Jenna and the G’s, whilst press and VIPs enjoyed canapes and drinks under the shadows of the impressive Gaia. Press attendance on the evening included Manchester’s Finest, VIVA Manchester and Macclesfield Post.
