Big Science Event at Home

Take part in Science Oxford’s Big Science Event at Home this summer!

With lots of families with young children at home, the aim of the event is to celebrate our curiosity and creativity and have fun with science. It is open to all ages and children can take part either on their own or with family, with a friend via Zoom or as part of a group at school.

Investigations can be on any topic – which soap is the slippiest? How much air does it take to pop a banana? What’s the best material for Batman’s parachute?  To enter, teams simply need to do is share a video, poster or photo diary showing what they did and what they found out with Science Oxford  before Monday 13 July. Thanks to some great sponsors, there are lots of fantastic prizes to give away, including £500-worth of Playforce playground equipment for the winner’s school, science kits from The Curiosity Box and family tickets to the Science Oxford Centre.
