Summer Science Exhibition 2011
5-10 July | Free entry
Schools registration for the exhibition is now closed. Registration has been heavily oversubscribed this year, but if you have previously registered then we will do our best to accommodate your school. There is a waiting list for schools who wish to attend but who have not yet registered. If you would like to be added to this waiting list then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have received confirmation that your school has been allocated places then please download and read the Information for schools (pdf) and the Health and Safety Policy 2011 (pdf).
We will be developing some resources to help you get the most from your visit and explore contemporary science issues with your students. These will be linked to the work of the exhibitors and will be available before the exhibition to help you prepare your class for your visit.
Even if you are unable to visit the exhibition, these resources, along with other details about the exhibits, will be made available on this website. You can view the resources that accompanied last year’s Exhibition on our Invigorate website.
The Summer Science Exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for school students and teachers to experience some of the UK’s most cutting-edge science and technology research. What makes this event unique is the chance to meet and talk to the researchers behind the work on show.
The exhibition involves talking to researchers about their work and is ideal for both post-16 students and post-14 students. All schools groups must be registered and you can register groups of up to 30 students.
The exhibition features over 20 exhibits from researchers across the country with an emphasis on hands-on, approachable, interactive displays which have applications in the real world.
Students will be able to find out what is happening at the forefront of the science subjects they are studying, and explore career options with some of today’s leading scientists.
In addition to visiting the exhibition there will also be a chance to see a unique interactive show involving the latest scientific advances, presented by the researcher themselves.
