Wow!How? Family Science Fair – Volunteers needed!


As part of British Science Week and Oxfordshire Science Festival, Wow!How? returns for its eleventh year, as it aims to enthuse young visitors and the general public about all aspects of science. After last years attendence of 4,500 people, who enjoyed 35 activities, run by more than 160 volunteers, we are hoping for another fun filled and interesting year. Wow!How? aims to publicly promote science as an exciting, relevant, and worthwhile endeavour. For many visitors, it provides an unusual positive interaction with scientific ideas and experiments:

Date: Saturday 14th March, 10 am – 4 pm
Museum of Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum

Your help is needed however – Wow!How? are looking for creative and committed volunteers to develop and deliver exciting hands-on activities or short family-friendly talks and demonstrations. If you are interested in potentially leading or assisting on a stall, come to an introductory briefing: Thursday 15th or 22nd January, 5.15pm, at the Museum of Natural History (please let us know if you plan to come). On the day, we will also need lots of general help with welcoming visitors and covering lunch breaks. If you’d like to volunteer in this way, please also get in touch
