In autumn 2014 the Royal Institution will launch Ri Lates, an exciting new series of exciting adults-only evening events.
This autumn will see the start of a new and exciting series of events at the Royal Institution – the Ri Lates. If you’ve ever wondered why the kids get to do all the fun science, then these exciting adults-only takeovers of our historic 21 Albemarle Street home are for you!
Science is all about experimentation and exploration and that shouldn’t just be for the little ones – it’s fun to discover throughout our lives. Ri Lates will have the same hands-on approach as our Family Fun Days to get grown-ups excited about science. At Lates events, you will be able to take part in experiments, listen to engaging talks in our famous lecture theatre, play with materials to explore their properties, take part in creative activities and make things to take home.
Our first ever Ri Lates, Rules of attractionon Friday 24 October 2014, will allow you to question the world around you and show you things in a new light. Why does gunpowder explode? What happens to our judgement when we are attracted to someone? What happens to a liquid full of iron filings?
Our activities and workshops will let you discover the answers first-hand. As part of these eclectic social nights, food and drink stands will be located throughout the building so you can experiment, question, explore and create all evening.
The brand new Ri Lates series will kick off on Friday 24 October at 6.30pm with Rules of attraction. You can try your hand at all things attractive from magnets to explosions, and discover more about what it is that makes us fall in love.
Make your own gunpowder, sniff out a partner, play with magnets, have a drink and grab some food to the live jazz music before practising the rules of courtship at our dance workshops.
This event will take place on Friday 24 October from 6.30 - 10.30pm at the Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS, and is strictly for over-18s only.
Ri members, Faraday student members and fellows go free.
Benefit from free and better than half-price tickets, special offers and access to the CHRISTMAS LECTURES ticket ballot.
