Chaos, curiosity and creativity ...
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on experiments and activities exploring the challenges of navigation at sea, the unpredictability of the weather, and how scientists are working to understand climate change.
The Museum of Climate Hope
Researchers from the Oxford University Centre for the Environment will be with us to tell you more about the Museum of Climate Hope, a digital trail across the University’s museums and collections, exploring diverse themes related to climate change.
Ships, storms and navigation
Are storms at sea becoming more frequent as a result of climate change? Find out about storms at sea, how sailors in the past navigated the oceans, and try out original navigational instruments.
The mariners’ trail
Navigate your ship across the seas, find clues to objects and complete your captain's log to win your prize sticker.
Chaos theory and weather forecasting
Why is it so difficult to predict the weather? Come and investigate what the amazing double pendulum can tell us about weather forecasting and analysing climate models.
Understanding climate change
How can we investigate climate change? Talk to a scientist and find out how climate model simulations can help us understand more about the complexities of climate change.
