The initial range of seven University of Oxford approved science kits is scheduled for release at retail in September 2013. The range will include: Plants, Volcano, Chemistry 1000 set, DNA Detective, Solar Car, Excavations T Rex and Stegosaurus.
Further products will be developed in partnership with Oxford for distribution across Europe over the length of the three year contract.
Miguel Pina Martins, Science4you CEO, said: “This partnership sees one of the world’s most prestigious universities join forces with one of the youngest and most dynamic companies in this market. By joining the University of Oxford we take the next step in our mission to demystify science to children around the world.”
Hannah Aspey, head of brand and communications at Oxford Limited, added: “Oxford’s rich history of scientific research and discovery provides a strong platform of relevance to support the proposed science kit range at retail. Science4you has already established a good track record of working with academic institutions in Portugal, and we look forward to an equally productive and successful relationship with them as an Oxford licensee.”
