Throughout the year the L'Oréal Young Scientist Centre runs special events for students, teachers and families both at the Ri and around the country.
Throughout the year the LYSC team bring the spirit of experimentation and hands-on science around the country with the ‘Butlins Astonishing Family Science Weekends’. Hundreds of families take part in activities designed to ignite a passion for scientific exploration and discovery. Past weekends have taken place at Bognor Regis and Minehead.
In October 2014 the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and Ri partnered to open a new ground-breaking facility at UCLan's Preston campus. This Young Scientist Centre – the first of its kind outside of London – bring hands-on science and technology to young people in the North West of England.
In April 2017, the Royal Institution worked with Bayer, a global enterprise in the life sciences field, to open its first UK-based Baylab in Reading which aims to offer hands-on science experiences to thousands of children and young people each year.
The science laboratory offers the opportunity for school groups to use state-of-the-art equipment to experiment and develop innovative problem-solving skills. It complements the key stage 2–5 curriculum, enabling students to make their own unique discoveries.
