The Light Fantastic

Duration: 60 mins
Suitable For: KS3

A dazzling demonstration of the amazing properties of light. How do insects see the world? What has that got to do with stopping bank forgeries? How do scientists use infrared light to learn about the birth of stars? The show encourages pupil questioning and introduces some illuminating ‘big’ ideas to really get them thinking.


Our experienced team will put together a full or part-day programme of shows and workshops that fits into your school timetable and that allows sufficient time to set up, reset or clear away. The programme is tailored to each school and can usually include a mixture of activities for different Key Stages. A small number of activities may require two Science Oxford staff members, who could also run two streams of other activities simultaneously.

For timetables involving one staff member:

£230+VAT for a part day
£320+VAT for a whole day
15% discount for Member Schools

For timetables involving two staff members:

£360+VAT for a part day
£495+VAT for a whole day
15% discount for Member Schools

This is an example of a schedule of a full day with Science Oxford in your school:
