Primary and early years children can experience the excitement of experimenting and making their own discoveries on your school visit to the Science Oxford Centre. Our range of STEM activities are designed to engage and challenge, from the hands-on delights of our Exploration Zone to workshops, shows, pond dipping and guided walks in our 15 acres of woodland. We also have shows for all ages in our inflatable planetarium in the autumn term.
