ATOM was the Abingdon part of the Oxford Science Festival, which concluded in the Market Place on Saturday 21st March. There were 16 hands-on science displays, and our model Archimedes screw was popular. Simple but effective - a child can pour in a jug of water, the screw goes round, and it generates enough power to light the lights.ATOM festival

It was a cold day, but we had a steady stream of visitors and a lot of interest.

    then the Air and Country Show,
        then Fun in the Park ....
