Super Science Saturday: Diversity - Postponed until further notice

*Due to the hands-on nature of this particular event, and the growing concerns about COVID-19, the event has been postponed until further notice. More information will be released with the new date when available. The Museum remains open for business as usual, and the programme of events is still going ahead. Please note, the 'Doing up our flies' event scheduled on this day has been cancelled. 


Come along on Saturday March 14th to examine the diversity of science! Discover DNA, and how each person’s DNA makes them unique. You can learn about the variety of different DNA in bacteria, Build a Bacteria to take home, and have a go at extracting DNA from a fruit smoothie with the DNA Diversity group!

How do we maintain the wonderful diversity of our Earth? Find out some conservation success stories by going on an Optimistic Conversation tour around the Museum, or chat to visiting climate change volunteers about conservation - now and in the future! You can help with conservation of British bees by building your own bee box, and seeing through the eyes of a bee to find the most bee-friendly plants for your garden.

We are also considering the diversity of people who work in science! Come along to see a performance by Geologise Theatre telling the stories of women in Earth Sciences, and visit Museum staff to talk about how scientists are displayed, in a Shape your Museum activity.

Finally, ponder the diversity of ways we learn as humans. Researchers from Oxford Brookes University will introduce the complex World of Languages (there are 7,111 spoken languages in the world!), and visit the Numeracy Game Zone to discover how we learn maths at home without even realising it! Family friendly. Free, drop in.
