Summer Science Exhibition

The Royal Society's annual Summer Science Exhibition is made up of 22 exhibits showcasing some of the best research being done right now across the UK. At the event, members of the public, teachers and students have the opportunity to talk to scientists about their discoveries and to take part in hands on activities to explore the research.

Group bookings for schools are now live for those who are part of the Royal Society Schools Network. 

The Summer Science Exhibition 2019 will run from 1 July - 7 July. Group booking for schools will be available between Monday 1 July and Friday 5 July.

'Inspiring science' days

On: Monday, Tuesday and Friday
Aimed at students aged 14 and above, and their teachers, the Exhibition provides the opportunity to take a glimpse at the future of science and how it can solve real-world issues. Schools can also attend one of the schools talks taking place during their booked session time. Schools and colleges can book a group to attend a fixed 3 hour slot throughout Monday or Tuesday, or on Friday morning.

'My future in science' days

On: Wednesday and Thursday
This is a new pilot for 2019 aimed at students studying STEM A-levels or equivalent, and their teachers. Attendees will get the unique opportunity to take a full day to explore the Exhibition and engage in a number of new activities, allowing students to talk one-on-one with the researchers and find out more about the fields they are working in and how they got there. There will also be talks taking place throughout the day. Groups will need to be on site for 10am, and the programme of activities will run through to 3.30pm so students and staff will be expected to stay the whole day.

If you have any questions, please email the Schools Engagement Team.

Many of the exhibits contain science that is shaping our future and that directly relates to the curriculum. Teachers can access some of these examples for use in their lessons even if they were unable to attend the event in person. If you have never been to the exhibition before, please follow the links below to find out more.
