Mini-magicians master the science of illusion to conjure up mind – and light – bending tricks before your very eyes! They’ll see the world turn upside-down as we build a pin-hole camera to take home, explore the art of early animation by making moving images from stills with a spooky zoetrope – and create the illusion of colour from monochrome, with Benham’s spinning discs. A magic session for aspiring David Blaine’s and Fay Presto’s – but no spoilers, keep it under your magician’s hat!

All Saturday Science Club sessions must be accompanied by an adult. Please make sure you have at least 1 adult for every 2 children attending.

Science Oxford welcomes all children to our clubs. If you or 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.

Science Oxford is committed to inclusion and we recognise that cost is sometimes a barrier. Funded places for eligible families are now available, thanks to the Austin and Hope Pilkington Trust. Families could be eligible for these places for several reasons; for example, if your child receives free school meals or is a looked-after child. To find out more and to book one of these places, please contact [email protected].

This event is part of a partnership between Science Oxford and the Abingdon Science Partnership to bring science-themed activities to wider audiences across the region.
