Support Us

Help us create a new science education centre at Stansfeld Park for Oxford and the region to inspire the next generation of scientists and innovators.

We are developing the UK’s first indoor-outdoor science education centre dedicated to primary-aged children – with an interactive gallery, teaching spaces, outdoor learning zones, theatre and an urban wild space for exploration and investigation. The centre will cost in the region of £3.75 million. We already have £1.25 million committed to the project but we need to raise a further £2.5 million.

We are looking for people to help us build a centre of excellence that Oxfordshire and the region can be proud of.  It will mean thousands of children will have the opportunity to experience stimulating hands-on science – indoors and out. The new centre will help children, their teachers and families develop a more positive attitude towards science and lay important foundations for science learning. We will show children that science can be cool, can lead to an amazing career and can change lives for the better. Stansfeld Park is all about investing in and supporting future generations of scientists and innovators; critical to maintaining our place as an area right at the forefront of research and innovation.

The next generation of scientists and innovators depends on your support.

Founding Patrons

We already have a number of Founding Patrons: committed individuals who have generously given funds to kick-start our fundraising campaign and help us realise our vision.

Lead Partners

We are recruiting Lead Partners whose contributions will secure naming rights. First of all, of the science education centre itself, marking the donor’s commitment to education as a crucial part of the Oxfordshire science and innovation ecosystem. Donations from partners can also fund and name other areas of the centre too, including the Science Discovery Zone, Theatre, Atrium, Livelab and Learning Space.

If you are able to become a Founding Patron, a Lead Partner or generally champion our project, please contact Paul Dryden:
