Free family activites beneath the Sun at STEAM
And you will find a range of free activities everyday alongside the display, whilst you take in the view.
From Monday to Saturday, join the team from IF Oxford to:
- Experiment with phosphorescent paper and UV torches to create shadow prints at the Glow Gallery.
- Discover the properties of light and make an illuminated star to take home.
Plus, special events from Knapsack Productions:
- Journey into Space - Live experiments, mass participation and spacesuits! (Tuesday morning, only)
In space no one can hear you scream, especially if your aren’t wearing a spacesuit and your capsule springs a leak, or is hit by a meteor, or burns up on re-entry, or any of the other terrible mishaps that could really put a dent in your plans for a weekend away on the moon.
- The Invisible Museum - A fun, exciting, interactive show for 7-11 year olds and their families, which reveals hidden voices throughout history. (Wednesday morning only)
Have you heard of the Invisible Museum? No? Well you may not have heard of the people whose stories are told in the Museum either. Join The Curator of the Museum as she unpacks the artifacts she has collected through history and tries to fix her time-travel device to get the objects back home.
Through interactive story-telling, hands on experiments and object handling, The Curator will take you on a journey through history. Take a fresh look at the past and discover the people who, despite their significant contributions, aren’t in the galleries, museums or history books.
