The Oxford University Museum of Natural History are hosting their popular science event, themed on minibeasts. It takes place 12 March 2022, 12-4pm.

Super Science Saturday: Fantastic Minibeasts

12th March 2022, 12-4pm

Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, Oxford

The Museum is looking for insect experts and enthusiasts to run an activity stand about their research topic for families with primary school aged children (5-10 years). This is a drop-in science fair that showcases great science research and experts in Oxford/shire and helps families to engage with this topics in a fun and engaging way.

The topic of this event is minibeasts inspired by our current HOPE for the Future project celebrating British insects. The Museum is looking for any work or activity that celebrates insects, utilises minibeasts to further understand something, or even research inspired by minbeasts and things we’ve learnt about them.

The Museum also provides science communication training for participants and can help to develop activities for anyone who would find this useful. Someone from the Education team will meet with each person initially to talk through their ideas and we go from there.

If you are interested click here to email Carly Smith-Huggins detailing your idea/proposal, or for an initial chat.
