From exciting demonstrations to tours and planetarium visits - we offer plenty of activities to inspire the next generation of scientists.
Please be aware that due to COVID-19 we cannot yet confirm whether these activities will run this year.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please join our mailing list or check back here for updates.
Our primary planetarium days are designed to give primary students a chance to be immersed in space. School groups are invited to visit Imperial's South Kensington campus and the Science Museum to engage in numerous activities. These include:
- Inflatable planetarium
- Science Museum Wonderlab visit
- Workshop or 'Meet a Scientist' session
Unfortunately, our primary planetarium days are currently suspended due to COVID-19. For more information or to register your interest for future visits, please email Renee Boling.
Talk with Scientist Series
This programme gives primary school students the chance to meet a real-life scientist and learn about their research in an engaging way.
These talks are recorded and then shared online so many more students can benefit - watch the recordings here.

Great Exhibition Road Festival
The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a weekend-long celebration of curiosity, discovery and exploration in South Kensington.
It is a collaboration between 20 cultural institutions including Imperial College London, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, the V&A and the Royal Albert Hall.
The Festival brings together science and the arts in a unique programme of creative workshops, talks, exhibitions and performances, many of which are suitable for a primary school audience.
Reach Out Lab visits
The Wohl Reach Out Lab (ROL) is a state-of-the-art laboratory at Imperial's South Kensington Campus.
It provides a dedicated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) space where our team of subject experts can deliver educational activities to raise the aspirations and scientific literacy of young people.
Please be aware that places are assigned according to eligibility and availability. To find out more, email us at email@example.com.
Science Clubs is an externally-funded programme that provides one term of an after-school club to a designated school that introduces children from disadvantaged areas to STEM learning opportunities they might not access otherwise.
Delivered by Imperial Postgraduate Ambassadors we provide an assortment of activities to engage young people and help them build a greater understanding of the world around them.
If you are interested in running your own club, contact Renee Boling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
