Half Term Science Club – Brain Power (ages 5-9)
Brains. Spookily clever science to blow your mind! See pictures of real brain scans and try the ‘Stroop’ colour and word test – fun for adults too! Not only that, discover how nerves work through play, and even learn a basic new language. Brainiacs can make a paper ‘brain hat’ to take home for Halloween – how about a brain-eating zombie costume?

All Saturday Club sessions must be accompanied by an adult. These family workshops are designed for you and your child to learn from each other and work together while trying out new things.
Our fun sessions for ages 5-9 are designed to engage children and their families with STEM: science, technology, engineering and maths. Through entertaining demos and hands-on activities, children have a chance to learn, explore, question and investigate different areas of science. Each month has a different theme, so you can try something new each time if you attend regularly.
Our skilled staff ensure that every child can access the activities and differentiate to engage all children.
If your child has specific additional needs, please get in touch via [email protected] to discuss how they can be best supported.
Science Oxford is committed to inclusion, and we recognise that cost is sometimes a barrier so are working with schools and community groups to provide funded places to individuals to remove the barriers where we can.
