Coffee stop at Costa
Sep 2018 • Couples
We decided to pop into Oxford for a walk around and a coffee before going to watch our son in law play at nearby Oxford City in the F.A. cup as we had a couple of hours to kill .The first thing you notice driving into the centre is the bewildering traffic layout and signs to get to the town centre .The car parks seem to be £4.50 p.h. and upwards, probably so can use the park and ride system available which for us was not really an option.
Walking around the busy streets was a depressing experience due to the amount of beggars and homeless openly drinking alchohol at many of the squares .The two graveyards we passed in the car also housed tented communities of homeless people ,very sad .
After having fond memories of Oxford from years past this was not a pleasurable trip

Everyone can have fun doing science
Jan 2018 • Couples
Attended the Micro:net coding for adults workshop on a cold Thursday evening. Tickets for the workshop were a Christmas present for my husband who is interested in learning to code.

Sarah, who was running the workshop was friendly and knowledgeable. She did her best to help everyone out. By the end of the session everyone could send and receive messages. We all then had a go at using the thermometer and accelerometer built into the the computer, but this was less successful (it was more complicated and we ran out of time).

They haven't run this type of session before and the format is still evolving. The plan is to next time control little cars using the accelerometer - this could be a lot of fun!

I'm a great fan of science and am really keen to promote science in the community. Oxford is really lucky to have a centre promoting science and STEM activities.

From looking at their website the centre holds lots of sessions for all either in the evening or on a Saturday morning - most are sold out.
So, would we attend further sessions, probably not as the centre was an hours drive away from home.
But we might book in our young relatives in for some Saturday morning science.

Winchester science centre could learn a few things from Oxford science.

Good to See STEM Sciences Engaging our Kids
Mar 2017 • Family
We booked a Saturday morning trip to Oxford to take advantage of the rich Scientific heritage of the City. First tip is use the park n ride as parking in Oxford is tricky but the Bus services are frequent and not expensive. The Centre for Innovation is next to the Castle Grounds so convenient for further attractions. We went to a session for our 2 nine year olds to learn about the science of music and tickets were cheap. I will emphasise that this is a Science and Innovation facility and not a tourist attraction, so you are in a working building - therefore facilities are 'office' rather than tourist. The Scientist running the session was enthusiastic and helpful (my son rated her 10/10) and plenty of interactive materials were provided. I would say the optimum age would be 6-8 but if you want some real brain food for the kids rather than tablet games this is a great place to start.
