Held at Headington Baptist Church, Oxford, OX3 9HW.
We aim to enjoy science, and wonder at God’s world. The scientific method has given us amazing insights into how the natural world works. In turn this has led to life changing technologies.
We will look at some of this awesome science through hands-on fun for adults, teens and children 7 years old and older. As we do, we will thank God who caused this world to exist and has given us minds with which to explore it and enjoy it.
We try to offer something for everyone. If you are at the ‘playing’ stage and simply want to enjoy the experiments, you can. But if you want to do some measuring, recording and calculating, that will be available also. On the other hand, you might want to pursue some serious questions with one of the expert scientist present, perhaps about an exam topic or just because you are interested. All these will usually be possible in a WOW Science session.
During each WOW Science event there will also be a moment to think about God and be thankful.
Coils, currents and magnetic fields – making motors and generating electricity. Find out how it all works. Amongst other things you will make a motor and make an electromagnet, you will hear about Michael Faraday, who carried out many of the original experiments, and meet the present-day scientist.
All sessions are 4pm-5.30pm unless otherwise stated.
