Every July and August the Ri runs a range of workshops, bringing to life all areas of science, mathematics, computing and engineering through exciting hands-on workshops.
While the gradual relaxing of Covid-19 restrictions was welcome news for everyone, social distancing remains and we do not yet know when we will be able to open our building to the public, and run our programme of activities as normal. Summer Schools workshops in particular pose a particular challenge due to the interactivity of these sessions being a core part of their appeal.
As such, we’ve taken the difficult decision not to run our Summer Schools programme this year. This was a hard decision to make, as we know just how much our young members enjoy experiencing hands-on exploration, but the safety of the young people visiting us will always be our main priority.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back for Summer Schools next summer, and to other family programme events as soon as it is safe to run these.
