The Royal Institution
London, United Kingdom
The Royal Institution (Ri) was established in 1799 with the purpose of ‘diffusing science for the common purposes of life’. Over 200 years on, we’re an independent charity dedicated to connecting people with the world of science. We do this via our inspiring science Ri Channel, public programmes and education initiatives for young people, the Faraday Museum, history of science activities, and the famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES®.
At our Albemarle Street home in Mayfair, scientists such Humphry Davy, Michael Faraday, John Tyndall and George Porter discovered 10 chemical elements, won 14 Nobel Prizes, made world-changing discoveries in the laws of electromagnetism and molecular biology, and pioneered public science lectures and science events for children.
