We will be running a stall alongside the Nuffield Department of Medicine, focusing on the effects of ageing. The theme of the event is ‘Ageing: From Birth and Beyond’ in honour of Dementia Awareness Week.

At our stall, people will be able to join in with hands-on activities for the whole family to understand the science behind getting older. Try on an age simulation suit, play memory games, build-a-brain, contribute to dementia research by playing a game – as well as much more. Scientists, researchers and other organisations will also be offering practical advice about living well and information on the science behind ageing.

Organised by Living Well Oxford and supported by a Wellcome Trust People Award, the pop up will be taking place all week. For more information, visit the Science Oxford website.
