Oxford Science Week is a new initiative being run by our developmental researchers during half term – 16th – 20th February. It has been designed to engage young adolescents – in years 7 & 8 – to learn more about science in a fun and interactive way.
Parents can book their children into a morning or afternoon session during half term week and bring them along to the department of experimental psychology. Activities will be organised in groups of about ten other children, who will be chaperoned by two researchers (DBS approved to work with children). We will be playing brain games designed to help children learn more about their adolescent brain – including pin the neuron on the brain and the brain piñata.
