Oxfordshire Science Festival – 7th – 23rd March: Lots of interesting events and activities to get involved in


7th – 23rd March 2014

The festival offers events for young children right through to adults. They are rapidly growing and attracted more than 30000 participants last year.

There are events for professional scientists and people with an interest in science, however most events are aimed at regular people who just want to have fun and perhaps explore a topic that is important to them such as climate change, inheritance, music and sport.
