This week, there's the Dean Lomax lecture at the Amey Theatre. Wednesday 13th December at 7pm.

Tickets available by clicking here.

Next week our partners, Bright Sparks, are bringing a special Christmas science activities day to Abingdon town centre. Details below.



Santa's Elves have taken a break from helping Santa, and kindly invite children and their families to join them in Abingdon town centre on  Wednesday 20th December for some Christmas themed Science activities:          

The Science of Christmas.

The Elves will be experimenting in the funnest laboratory outside the North Pole! Take a look at how snowflakes are formed, experience frosty effects, find out how to wrap a present with mathematical precision and get a sprinkling of Christmas magic!

This fun event is sure to create an entertaining scientific twist on a white* Christmas!

It’s free for families to drop in and take part. Just pop into the Community Shop in the Bury Street Precinct between 11am and 2pm (that’s just across from Poundland, not Lapland).

Join the team from Bright Sparks Science and ATOM volunteers as we put the ‘festive’ into the (ATOM) Festival!

*White Christmas not guaranteed. As Santa’s Science Elves are fond of saying “may all your Christmas’s be the entire visible spectrum of electromagnetic radiation”
