Science Oxford: Planet Power!

Loading Events

Get eco-friendly and make your own renewable energy with Science Oxford! Learn about the different ways we can power our planet and conduct your very own scientific experiments with your family. Bright sparks create electricity with our circuit-challenge and investigate whether the sun or the wind creates the most ‘planet power’ and make mini wind-turbines to take home.

This workshop is suitable for children aged 5-9. Children must be supervised at all times by a parent or carer. Parents and carers go free with a child’s ticket. Booking in advance is strongly advised due to previous demand.
