The Royal Institution: Science in schools
Our programme of Science in Schools brings our popular demonstration shows into school across the UK, accompanied by valuable Continuing Professional Development sessions for teachers. The shows give students, teachers and families a chance to see our specially trained presenters in action, delivering science shows inspired by the CHRISTMAS LECTURES.
The shows are jam-packed with experiments, demonstrations and the odd explosion! Available across the UK, the programme brings shows and CPD into your school in a package, with the option to have a community show in the evening.
You can choose from our range of specially written shows, which we then present to audiences in your school hall or theatre. We can put on a show for your local community (eg parents and families from the local area or feeder primary school families etc). This is a great way to show that your school emphasises and celebrates science.
As part of the package, we also will provide a CPD session for up to 15 teachers (see below) to inspire and support them to bring hands-on science into the classroom. We will work with you to build a programme that suits your school's and teachers' needs.
1.30pm Show for Key Stage 2 (or 3)
4pm – 5pm CPD session
6.30pm Show for local community*
*You can choose to provide the community show for free to the audience, or choose to charge for entry and keep the ticket revenue as a way of fundraising for your school.To book this activity, please contact:
