Generating Genius

This year the L’Oréal Young Scientist Centre team are delighted to collaborate on a new programme with L’Oréal UK & Ireland and educational charity Generating Genius to give promising A-level science students from disadvantaged backgrounds a real insight into what it is like to be a scientist.

The aim of the four month hands-on programme is to showcase the wealth of exciting careers studying science can lead to and to encourage the students to pursue a science, technology, engineering or mathematics related degree at university.

Big Bang Fair

Since 2010 the L'Oréal Young Scientist Centre has packed up and taken the workshops on the road to the national Big Bang Fair.

At our stand young people (and grown-ups) can make their own lip balms, exploring the principles of solids, liquids and gases, fats and solubility. No two lip balms are ever the same!
