As part of your visit to the Science Oxford Centre, you can book one of our workshops, which are designed to engage children of all ages with creative and challenging practical science. They provide opportunities for discussion and higher order thinking and enable children to progress their understanding of scientific concepts as well as to develop their enquiry and problem-solving skills. Most of the workshops are run in the Centre but from September 2021, you can now select one of our new Pond Dipping Workshops outdoors too.
These workshop sessions are based on the Thinking, Doing, Talking Science approach, developed by Science Oxford and Oxford Brookes University, and will provide accessible ideas for teachers to adapt for their own classroom use. Any recording done by the children during the workshops will be made available to teachers so evidence of progression in their learning can be documented.
