Visit the Science Oxford Centre for a unique family experience this Easter holiday. Explore, discover and play in the Exploration Zone, pick up an activity sheet and follow the spring woodland nature trails at the Spring Family Days at Science Oxford Centre.
Children and grown-ups alike have fun experimenting with interactive exhibits in the Exploration Zone, where you can create and test flying designs at the Air Table, marvel at momentum with spinning discs at the Turntable, and try to beat the Scarf-shooter.
Mini-engineers can build a giant magnetic ball run, or test what’s hot and what’s not with the Curious Camera. Brainiacs can solve puzzles, light up circuits and get the cogs whirring with our fun, mind-melting activities.
At the Live Lab you can meet with a real-life scientist or a member of the Science Oxford team, to either take part in an interactive activity or to conduct a mini experiment of your own. This drop-in activity is included as part of your 2-hour Exploration Zone session.
The outdoor ‘Water Lab’ exhibit allows visitors to carry out a range of water-based play, investigation and problem solving activities. Experiment with floating and sinking, adjust the water flow from a trickling stream to a raging current, or test your own ideas with other interchangeable accessories. We advise taking a change of dry clothes in case you get wet, and children must be supervised by their adult at all times.
The health and well-being of visitors and staff is the highest priority. Following Government guidance, here are some steps the centre is taking to keep you safe:
