We are delighted to be opening the doors of our amazing new Science Oxford Centre to families for the very first time. The Science Oxford Centre is a place of investigation and discovery – an exciting space where children can create their own experiments and make their own discoveries.
Take a tour of the Exploration Zone, where each of the twenty hands-on exhibits has been designed to give children the freedom to explore, think and see the world differently. Watch water freeze, shoot scarves, check your ‘glow’ with our thermal camera and build your own marble maze.
Head outside to our 15-acre woodland for a walk. Comprising ponds, pathways and the odd fox, deer or badger, this previously private woodland is a real secret treasure of Oxford and a must-see during your visit. Plus there’s a tap to rinse-off muddy wellies too.
In the workshop space, there will be more hands-on challenges with our maths carousel – a range of puzzles for all the family that will have you thinking like a Sudoku champion.
To complete this inaugural family opening, tickets include entry to Look Up, a space-themed family show with biologist and TV presenter Simon Watt in our new theatre.
Have you ever wondered which planet is the hottest? Or which planet would float in a swimming pool? And just how much space really is in space? Find out how crisps can help make a telescope and how to make your own fizzy rockets. Spacetrotter Simon Watt will be your guide to what you can see if you only look up!
Please note this show is suitable for ages 6+
So please join us at this very special opening event and be the first to step where no family has ever stepped before…
