Winterville, London’s alternative festive experience, returns to Clapham Common with a diverse and unmissable month of entertainment you won’t find anywhere else this winter period. Winterville is brought to you by the co-founders of Field Day, Mighty Hoopla and Street Feast.

OKIDO Art and Science Workshops aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, makers and inventors by asking questions and providing hands-on activities to come up with the answers. The sessions are a great learning environment to satisfy curious little minds through collaboration, curiosity, discovery and critical thinking.

Why do things fall down instead of up? How come we don’t fly off the surface of the Earth? What would a playground in space look like?

Did you know there are different types of electricity? Have you ever wondered why your hair

sometimes sticks up? Or why you get a ZAP when rubbing your feet on the carpet?

When you need to know, go to OKIDO!

OKIDO Magazine is an independent arts and science magazine for young children and their families. It was started by parents on a kitchen table in Brixton in 2007, designed to fire up imagination and understanding of art and science. Founders, scientist Dr Sophie Dauvois (PhD BSc PG Dip.) and artist Rachel Ortas are passionate about engaging young kids in the scientific world around them through play, art and fun.

OKIDO’s mission is to create the next generation of scientists. That’s why they put STEAM learning  (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) at the heart of everything they do, combining art and science to ignite curiosity and creativity in young children.

Ten years later and they are on the second season of ‘Messy goes to OKIDO’, a popular children’s comedy adventure series on CBeebies.

OKIDO is a family of scientists, artists and educators that understand how important STEAM learning is for younger children and firmly believe it is never too early to encourage STEAM enrichment programs.

STEAM is central to OKIDO learning. Their mission is to develop these skills by encouraging collaboration, curiosity, exploration, discovery, creativity, and critical thinking.

OKIDO has been selected to work with the British Science Association as a facilitator of the Crest Awards, the BSA’s flagship programme for young people. The Awards help to develop a culture of ‘everyday science’, bridging different types of learning and supporting cross-curricular education.
