Dance the Universe at the Oxfordshire Science Festival

Sunday 21st May 2017

The Oxfordshire Science Festival, supported by Science Oxford, has launched its fantastic programme of events and activities for 2017. The festival takes place from 16-21 June this year and promises a plethora of talks, workshops, performances and hands-on happenings for all the family.

Explore solar plasmas, the science of pleasure and the history and fate of humanity. Or why not touch the clouds and build stars, dance the Universe or watch our very own Midsummer Science Cabaret (Wed 21 June)?

Science Oxford will also be helping you to take control of the planet at our interactive Masters of Disaster – Next Gen Earth event (Mon 19 June) and making solar chargers at our renewable Maker Club (Sat 17 June.)

Over the weekend, we‘ll be joining thirty different science-related groups in the Explorazone at Oxford Town Hall, where you can get hands-on with the very latest research (Sat 17 & Sun 18 June, 12-5pm.) Families, adults and kids of all ages can delve into the world of exosomes (how our cells talk to each other), entomophagy (eating insects) and optical illusions. Grab some paper and fold a genome with DNA origami, build a skeleton or become a paramedic – the Explorazone will keep you busy for hours!
