Oven Ready Science


Next dates

Sorry, there are no future dates available

With a pinch of science, a dash of inspiration and a dollop of fun, we have all the ingredients for cool kitchen chemistry at the Museum of Oxford!

Join Science Oxford in this tasty, family-friendly workshop and explore what makes bread rise or beer bubbly, and who can make yeast grow the fastest in our own mini ‘Bake Off’.

Discover colour-changing red cabbage chemistry using acids and alkalis; or, find out why cakes rise while making a fizzy mess! 

Test and make predictions for our Egg-cellent experiments, or create crazy flour mixtures and make ‘Oobleck’ Slime to take home. On your marks, Get ready… Bake!

10.30am - 12pm, or 1.30-3pm at the Museum of Oxford

£10 (includes one child plus adult)

Ages 5-9
