During school holidays, we run a range of exciting hands-on workshops, bringing to life all areas of science – including mathematics, computing and engineering. All workshops take place in our building in the heart of London.

Workshops in the L’Oréal Young Scientist Centre offer students the chance to be a laboratory scientist for the day and make explosive bath bombs, investigate forensic science, exploring the chemistry of colour and more.

Workshops curated by the Ri Masterclass team, are led by experts from across industry and academia. Students can design and build a crash-resistant car, create mathematical art, or even build a giant structure from engineer newspaper rods.

Ri young members now receive an extra 30% off new workshop bookings. This in addition to the regular 15% discount, and is a special thank you for supporting the Ri as a member. For details please email membership@ri.ac.uk

Our summer programme was previously advertised as 'Ri Summer Schools'. This programme is now 'holiday workshops', but features the same activities you know and love, as well as lots of new exciting sessions.
