Family Open Day (23rd November)
The Science Oxford Centre provides an amazing and unique science-themed experience for young people and their families. Our new venue encourages them to play and explore – to design their own experiments and make their own discoveries. Our exciting Exploration Zone has a wide range of hands-on exhibits for children to enjoy. Try out the scarf-shooter, build a giant magnetic marble run, see bugs close-up under our easy-to-use microscopes, watch water freeze before your eyes and see what’s hot and what’s not with our thermal camera.
Outside in the 15-acre woodland, you can follow the trails, enjoy the beautiful ponds and hunt for the clues that identify what wildlife lives in the woods. Please note: Due to the nights becoming darker earlier over the autumn/winter months, last access to the woodland is at 4pm. If you are attending the 3-5pm session, we advise that you arrive early (for example 2.30pm) to visit the woodland before you head into the Exploration Zone.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the café will NOT BE OPEN for food and refreshments today. Instead, we will be providing hot drinks and light snacks for visitors. You are still welcome to bring packed lunches on site – these can be eaten in the centre foyer before or after your session. We apologies for the inconvenience.
