6. Event/activity description (max 300 words):
Oxfordshire Science Festival is an opportunity for people right across the county to engage with the cutting edge research that is taking place, right here on our doorsteps. In 2013 we had 133 events which attracted around 30,000 people. We covered the whole county, from Henley to Burford, and from Didcot to Banbury. In 2014 we're planning to be even bigger, with the return of the "Wow! How?" Science Fair, and the first ever "ATOM!" a new two day climax to the Festival in Abingdon. OSF has events for people of all ages and levels of interest. There are activities for young children and for professional scientists - in fact, anyone who wants to explore the amazing world of science. But most of all our events are aimed at regular people who just wants to have fun!
