Guide Science Taster Day 2019
Guides from across the County visited the University of Oxford for our 4th annual Science Taster Day. The day was organised by the Department of Computer Science and included sessions on the material properties of chocolate, programming with Sphero robots, using density differences to create rainbows in a test tube, looking at galaxies with Zooniverse, a maths session on smoothie making and a tour of Hertford College.
A massive thank you to the leaders who made this event possible and the Computer Science Outreach team who organised our sessions.
The Guides enjoyed the coding with robots session so much that we have launched a project to offer introductory coding sessions to Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers across the County. We are currently applying for funding. If you would like to support this project, please get in touch.
