We're teaming up with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History to hold a stall at the Iris Festival of the Future and showcase how Parks College research is preparing us for the future.

This event explores the many exciting - and sobering - possibilities the future may hold for our societies and our planet. More than ever before, we are thinking about the future impact of climate change, technology and medical advances, and what these might mean for the way we live, travel, learn, work and play. Businesses, organisations, museums and universities from across and beyond Oxfordshire will be at the event to create "a future trail" across the Cheney School. This is a large community event organised by the Rumble Museum, which explores a range of exciting technologies and themes, and ancient and modern ideas about the future.

Come see how we’re preparing for the future by inspiring new ideas and collaborations to cure disease, save the environment, and develop new technologies to make everyone’s lives better. Join us, and build a model of a virus, draw your vision of the future, and try out our VR headset to learn a new skill.
