Science Oxford: Planet Power!

Thursday, August 15, 2024 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Get eco-friendly and make your own renewable energy with Science Oxford.

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.

This ticket is for the workshop at 10:00. Please click for tickets to the workshops at 11:30 and 13:30.


There is step-free, level entry access to the Town Hall is via the entrance closest to Carfax (to the left of the main steps as you face the Town Hall). Inside the Museum, Museum Makers is accessible via a platform lift to the Galleries and then via stairs.
