News

This summer the Royal Institution has an action-packed programme of fun, hands-on educational activities for everyone aged seven and older.

From half day and full day workshops to week long courses running for five weeks from 27 July to 28 August, our range of innovative and interactive Summer Schools are designed to bring to life all areas of science, mathematics, computing and engineering. With over 70 sessions to choose from, covering topics from climate change to acoustics, earthquakes to rocket science, forensics, crash-testing and ancient history there is something for everyone.

The workshops in the L’Oréal Young Scientist Centreoffer students the chance to be a scientist for the day by making explosive bath bombs, extracting their own DNA, investigating forensic science, exploring the chemistry of colour and much more.

In the workshops and Summer Schools devised by the Ri’s Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering Masterclasses team and led by experts from across industry and academia, students can design and build their own underwater robots, have a go at computer coding and mathematical origami, or even try their hand at some 3D printing.

Booking is now open and places can be booked online via the Ri’s What’s On calendar or by calling our Public Programme team on 020 7409 2992.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. All tickets are discounted for Ri members.

The Ri Summer Schools 2015 programme runs for five weeks from 27 July to 28 August and all sessions take place from Monday to Friday.
