The Royal Institution (Ri) has a vision for the world in which everyone is inspired to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives. Home to scientific giants including Michael Faraday, Humphry Davy, Kathleen Lonsdale and John Tyndall, discoveries made here have shaped the modern world. Vitally, these scientists understood the importance of sharing their work with the wider public.
Today the Royal Institution continues its mission to create opportunities for everyone to discover, discuss and critically examine science and how it shapes the world around us. Building on its heritage, the Royal Institution provides science education and public engagement for people of all ages around the world – from the world-famous Christmas Lectures and public talks from the world's greatest thinkers in its historic lecture theatre to a successful YouTube channel with 900,000+ subscribers and a programme of masterclasses for young people in mathematics, engineering and computer science. In addition, there are hands-on science workshops in its L'Oréal Young Scientist Centre, award-winning animations and films and the preservation of its scientific legacy through the Faraday Museum and archival collections.
