Take your science to Super Science Saturday at the Museum of Natural History, deadline 17 October
1 October 2019
Public Engagement - opportunity
The Oxford University Museum of Natural History is looking for researchers to create and deliver an activity stand about their research for their biannual family science fair Super Science Saturday. The event will take place on Saturday 23rd November, 12-4pm.
The theme for this event is 'Oceans' to coincide with the Museum's current exhibition 'First Animals' which focuses on the earliest animals that lived in the oceans. We are looking for researchers whose work is focused around oceans, animals in the oceans (past and present)- this can include things we can learn about life generally from animals in the ocean, climate change and effects on the ocean, anything ocean related really!
The Museum's Education team are happy to support any researchers with the development of their activity and will arrange to meet with you to discuss through your ideas either in person or over the phone. The Museum also provides a short training session focusing on how to communicate science to young children which you are welcome to attend. Please ask for dates when you email me.
If you are interested or have any further questions, please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. Please aim to contact me before Thursday 17th October to express interest.
