Out-of-this-world space camp launched a summer of science in Oxfordshire
AN ELECTRIC summer of science across Oxfordshire blasted off with an out-of-this-world space camp in July.
Building a model space station, launching bread rockets, creating cloud chambers and making planets out of Play Doh were just some of the astronomical activities the young people took part in.
Dozens of children joined the five days of fun in and around Oxford’s Rose Hill Community Centre, where they also used secret agent-style ultra violet torches to read ‘invisible’ ultra violet writing.
The wondrous week, run by Science Oxford, aimed to engage youngsters aged seven to 11 in science and technology.
The community-focused camp was supported by Explore Your Universe, a national project celebrating the physical sciences, developed by the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC).
