S.T.E.A.M. Fair – Lab Live: Why oh Why? with OKIDO


September 29, 2018




Imagination Lab
26 Lambeth High Street,

Book Tickets

At Lab Live: Why oh Why, we’ll be asking the MOST important questions, for young inventors and explorers to come up with the answers. 

What can I expect at Lab Live: Why oh Why?

This Lab Live aims to inspire the next generation of scientists, makers and inventors by asking questions and providing hands-on activities to come up with the answers! Through posing some simple questions about everyday science, each activity will give children the chance to experiment, build, create, invent or explore different outcomes.

The event is all about STEAM and how combining STEAM subjects can help children to use and stretch their imaginations for creative and inventive outcomes.

What can I explore:

Science – play with experiments and reactions

Technology – get hands-on with technology like coding and electronics

Engineering – design and build, think about movement and mechanics

Arts – get creative and mix up materials, movement, sounds and crafts

Maths – numbers can be fun! Find out how to use simple maths in creative thinking

You will be able to explore over 15 activity stations, which will use different ‘science questions’ to generate experiments and activities. Each activity will use a different STEAM subject at its heart, but get children thinking about and combining lots of skills and approaches.

We’ll be announcing the activities and partners soon!

When is Lab Live: Why oh Why?

Lab Live: Why oh Why takes place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September. There are morning (10:00am-1:00pm), afternoon (2-5:00pm) and all day tickets available on each day. You can attend on either day, the same (or very similar) activities will run on both days.

There will be an hour break between 1-2:00pm between the morning and afternoon sessions. Those with morning only tickets are welcome to stay for lunch, but will need to leave the Lab by 2:00pm. Those with afternoon tickets are welcome to arrive at 1:00pm for lunch, but activities will not begin until 2:00pm.

Who is Lab Live: Why oh Why for and how much does it cost?

This event is ideal for children aged between 3-10 years old and their families, friends and carers. Please note, all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Children under 3 are welcome to attend and you need to register them for an ‘under 3’ ticket, which is free of charge. Please note, activities are aimed at children 3+ so there will be limited activities for very young children to take part in.

Tickets cost £7 for a half day and £12 for a full day. All activities can be enjoyed as part of the ticket price, but some stalls and activities include an enhanced or take-home option, which is paid.

If you’re a Lambeth resident, you’re eligible for free tickets on a first come first served basis. You can receive notifications about when free ticket codes are released by signing up here or you can email us at to request the code.
