Student Day Sessions

Energy LIVE! is an exciting audience led show, delving into the different stores of energy and how they affect our lives.

Through lively, fire-based demonstrations we take the intimidation out of the terminology around energy and show you just how simple this subject can be.

You will leave not only knowing your elastic from your gravitational, but also fired up (pun intended) about energy and with a newly-enthused approach to science.

Our charitable purpose at the Royal Institution is to bring the public and scientists together to share their interest and passion for science. We believe there should be equitable access to science, and that people’s desire to engage with science and scientists should be nourished.

We help more people to discover science and engage more deeply. We create spaces for scientists and the public to explore science together. We inspire students to see a future with science. We empower people to explore and get involved. And we offer charitable support to those, such as young people in disadvantaged communities, who might otherwise not be able to engage with science.

We’ve been doing it for well over 200 years, with an international reach, working with world-leading scientists, from Hannah Fry to Carlo Rovelli and Dame Sue Black to Sean Carroll.

We are a home for science and everyone is welcome.
