More information

The workshops in the L’Oréal Young Scientist Centre offer 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 devised by the Ri’s Masterclasses team, students will take part in sessions 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 bioengineering.
