Founded by the Trust in 2006, Science Oxford is the public-facing brand of the The Oxford Trust. Our aim is to inspire the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs and our programmes are all about encouraging young people in science, technology, engineering and maths.
We run the Science Oxford Centre, the UK’s first integrated indoor-outdoor hands-on science centre for early years and primary-aged children, which is open to schools during the week in term time. Our Primary Schools Programme includes a wide range of STEM-focused interactive workshops and shows for primary schools and training and support for teachers in the provision of creative and practical science lessons.
Our Secondary Schools Programme is focused on STEM Careers. We run a programme of activities and events designed to create opportunities for secondary school students to help them gain the information, knowledge and skills that could springboard them into a STEM career.
For the public
We run Family Days at our Science Oxford Centre every Saturday where you can experiment and make discoveries in our Exploration Zone and explore the trails in our 15 acres of woodland. In addition, we run regular STEM Clubs, including Nature Club, Science Club and Creative Computing Club. See What’s On.
Each year Science Oxford’s education and engagement programmes reach and amazing 47,403 individuals, including 13,988 primary school pupils and 1,017 secondary students.
The organisation works across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. For more information on Science Oxford see here.
