In 2016 the Museum of Natural History developed Super Science Saturday, a twice-yearly family-friendly science event. To date, nearly 5,000 people have taken part.
The focus has been on engaging with the science departments to encourage DPhil students and post-doctoral researchers to deliver activities based on their research. The event is targeted at a family audience and provides them with the opportunity to engage with some of the world-class research that goes on at the University.
Super Science Saturday developed from a previous event that was focused on engaging families about science in general to one that was more related to the museum’s collections and contemporary scientific research from the University.
