Explore the science of bubbles, dance with robots, get hands-on with bugs, and fungi and land yourself some moon rock. With more than 40 interactive science activities on offer, it really is an event for all the family. What’s more, you’ll also get to chat with the amazing scientists and engineers behind some of the world’s greatest discoveries.

There will be all sorts of activities suitable for children of all ages, including face painting and lucky science dips, and there’s plenty to keep adults entertained too. Be sure to look for our for science buskers along Oxford Rd who will be on hand to welcome, entertain, and inspire you.

What our visitors said last year:

  • “It had it all: fun, factual learning, accessible education, hands-on experiences... and lots of rewards for the kids.”
  • “So much to see and do. Absolutely brilliant - couldn't drag the kids away.”
