Brookes Science Bazaar

On SATURDAY 25th February, 10.30 am – 4pm, come and meet our many researchers at Brookes for a free day of fun-filled family activities at our Headington Campus.

Marvel at the miniature world of microbes and peer into into a plant cell. From food to fitness, learn what makes you happy, healthy and improves the inner workings of your brain. Test your knowledge on bones by meeting some of our friendly skeletons, help us save the slow loris with a selfie and find out why having a boisterous bash on a drum kit can improve your health.

Our staff and students from across the University have created various exciting hands-on activities for children aged 5-12 years (and adults too!)
