Air: how do we know it’s there?!

Wesley Memorial Church, New Inn Hall Street, OX1 2DH

Join Festival favourite Dr Sarah Bearchell for an interactive, multi-sensory exploration of air, where the audience are the scientists. We’ll be observing and experimenting together to gather lots of evidence, proving that air really is there!

Suitable for children aged 3 – 12, and for those with Special Educational Needs. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Sarah Bearchell is a freelance science writer and presenter based in Oxfordshire. She is a regular contributor to Aquila Children’s Magazine and Whizz Pop Bang. She also makes multi-sensory science shows and workshops to engage and delight children of all ages and abilities.
