*Wow! How?* at the *Museum of Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum*:
we advertise it to families promising that they can 'make, test,
explore, and explode with excitement at our annual bonanza of
experiments and hands-on fun!'.
Indeed, anyone familiar with our annual science jamboree will know that
it is a VERY BIG event, with more than 100 volunteers delivering dozens
of different hands-on activities, demos, and talks, as well as helping
to welcome visitors, collect feedback, etc.
This year's event is *Saturday 15th March* (Saturday 8th week), *10 am -
4 pm*, and although that seems ages away now, there's a lot to get done
in the meantime.
Attached is a document with lots more general information. There will
also be *two briefing sessions: 5.15 pm on 9th and 23rd January*.
If you're interested, do get in touch!
