This October half term, developmental researchers will once again be hosting "Oxford Science Adventures", three days of activities for children aged 6-14 years taking place at the department.
Oxford Science Adventures is an enterprise originally set-up by graduate students Hannah Hobson and Rebecca Merkley to assist in the collection of data for projects that require child participants. This year the week is being organised by Hannah, Brianna Doherty and Cathy Manning.
Parents can book a morning or an afternoon slot on the Tuesday-Thursday of half term (27th-29th October), and bring their child along to take part in studies looking into children’s numeracy, language and attention skills, and other crafty activities too! In previous OSA weeks, we've made pipecleaner neurons, played active neurotransmitter games, made inky pictures of our unique brains using our fingerprints, and written reflective poems about our brains.
