Oxford Science Adventures (OSA) are scheduled for 31st May, 1st and 2nd June 2016 at the Department of Experimental Psychology. This is a free activities club run at the Experimental Psychology department in half-term, for school-aged children.
It serves the dual-purpose of providing a public engagement opportunity, in order to teach children and families about psychology and neuroscience, as well as providing an opportunity for researchers to collect some data. Parents book for their child to come in for a half-day session (am: 9.30 - 12.30 OR pm: 13.30 - 16.30 pm) and parents stay in the department throughout the session. The exact age ranges of children vary depending on the projects that are running. We have a range of projects collecting data, based in the Developmental Science testing rooms, as well as a central area outside the lecture theatre where we have crafts and activities and have snacks and tea and coffee for the families. The general idea is that children will do some research projects, while also doing some crafts and activities in the central area.
Please sign your child up in advance if you would like to attend:
