Each year over 10,000 members of the public, including 2,000 school students, visit the Summer Science Exhibition. Many more are reached through coverage on TV, in the media and through our online content.
The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to raise the profile of your research and institution with key influencers, including potential funders, government and the public. We welcome proposals from researchers in academia, industry and in between, as long as the project lead is UK-based.

Writing your proposal
The Summer Science Exhibition Committee will invite a selected number of research exhibits to take part in the 2024 Summer Science Exhibition.
They aim to select exhibits that cover a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines.
Selection will be based on:
Quality and cutting edge science: The most important component: the science on show should be novel, robust and ground-breaking
Interactive and hands-on elements: Wherever possible, exhibits should contain elements that visitors can touch and try out to understand the scientific concepts behind the research
Interest to a broad audience: The most successful exhibits are those that are relevant to visitors or their experiences
