The next generation of women in astronomy

The way we understand the universe is influenced by many women both past and present, so during British Science Week we ran a “Women in Astronomy” study day for 57 girls aged 13-16 years, providing them with the opportunity to find out more about women in astronomy and their amazing work. Participants gained insight into how we study the cosmos and they had the opportunity to meet women astronomers working in Oxford. The event aimed to promote women into astronomy and allowed the girls to consider whether a career in astronomy might be for them!

Magnets Fantastic

At school, they teach you that iron, nickel and cobalt are magnetic, and that's about it. But that isn't the whole story. It's barely even the beginning. In fact, all kinds of things are magnetic, from pencil leads and beautiful crystals, to frogs and even the air we breathe...

In this interactive, family-friendly show full of experiments and demonstrations, we explore and explain all this and more from the world of Magnets Fantastic.
