Schools programme

If you would like to be one of the first to hear when the Summer Science Exhibition schools booking goes live each year, please sign up to the Royal Society Schools Network.

Following careful consideration of the current course of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Summer Science Exhibition. 

We will update this webpage with further information in due course and will be in touch with those schools already registered to arrange a refund for any deposits paid.

Schools programme at the Summer Science Exhibition 2020

If you wish to bring a group of students from a UK school or college to visit the Summer Science Exhibition and take part in the Schools programme, you can choose your day and slot via the booking links below.

Please read the FAQ’s on each booking page before proceeding. 

It is free to attend the Schools programme at the Summer Science Exhibition, however we ask for a refundable deposit (in the form of a ticket cost) for each student attending. This will be fully refunded after attendance at the Exhibition, as long as over 75% of the group attends on the day, or if you cancel your ticket more than a month before the Exhibition starts.

KS4+ visits: Aspiring scientists

These sessions will last two hours, at a fixed time slot, on either the Monday, Tuesday or Friday of the Summer Science Exhibition. 

Aimed at teachers and students in Key stage 4 – 5 (aged 14-18), these sessions provide a unique opportunity to explore the future of science and speak to the researchers that are making it happen. Students will be able to take a glimpse of 21 real world issues being tackled by scientists from across the UK, and find out more about the skills and approaches being used to solve them. For students already interested in studying STEM subjects further, the Exhibition is a great chance to discuss scientific research. 

Sixth form days: My future in science

These session will start at 10am and finish 2.30pm on either the Wednesday or Thursday of the Summer Science Exhibition.

Aimed at teachers and A-level students in Key stage 5 (aged 16 – 18), the Sixth form days offer students plenty of time to explore 21 real world issues being solved by leading researchers across the UK. They will also be able to attend exclusive talks and networking sessions where they will meet a range of researchers.  The students will be able to learn about the skills and approaches used in the researchers’ work and find out more about their careers and backgrounds.
