Environmentalists and coders unite in this sensor-making workshop, where young coders get the chance to create their own light-up device to check on the quality of pond water, and test it on some samples. They’ll be employing their coding genius to construct the sensor with a BBC micro:bit and Make Code drag and drop editor, then getting hands-on filtering water samples to see what difference they can make!

Ticket entry is for the workshop only, and does not include access to the Exploration Zone. The self guided woodland trail will be open after the session.

Families can bring their own picnic to eat in our outdoor under-cover seating area, as we ask visitors not picnic in the woodland as it is a protected area.

All sessions must be accompanied by an adult.

Science Oxford welcomes all children to our workshops. If your child has additional needs, please get in touch on [email protected] to discuss how we can best support your child to make the most of the club.

Please note there is no parking on site as it is a week day, we can only offer parking for disabled access and at weekends / evenings. There is street parking and public transport nearby, for more details please see Science Oxford Centre visitor information.
