Ri Young Membership

Ri Young Membership is open to everyone aged 17 or younger who is curious about the world and always asking questions.

Our family events are perfect for younger members who want to meet other children with similar interests, watch explosive demonstrations and get stuck in with hands-on experiments. Older children will receive bespoke emails with inspiring content to read and watch and could be in with a chance to attend our world-famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES.

All Ri Young Members are eligible for half price tickets to Ri talks throughout the year and discounts on thought-provoking and interactive workshops.

Everyone will also receive regular communications from the Ri delivered directly to their front doors and email inboxes.
