On Saturday 28 November we held the first of our new Super Science Saturdays events – a mini science fair for all the family.
The first event was Earth-themed, and featured many stalls about geology, geography and the natural environment – everything from fossils to earthworms!
Visitors got the chance to chat to University of Oxford scientists, meet people from wildlife organisations, and get their hands on specimens from the Museum collection.
Super Science Saturdays is a souped-up version of our regular Science Saturdays events, where scientists from the University help visitors investigate natural history specimens.
Many thanks to the University’s Department of Earth Sciences, the School of Geography and the Environment, and also to the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust, and the Oxford University Museums and Collections Volunteers for making the event a success.
