The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2022, which runs from 6 to 10 July, offers unique experiences, and a weekend programme of activities and workshops for all ages.

A team from the UK Atomic Energy Authority will be at the event to answer three major questions: What is fusion; why is it so challenging, and what is the solution to providing low carbon and sustainable energy in the future?

Returning as an in-person event for the first time since 2019, visitors to Summer Science can meet hundreds of scientists from 16 research groups selected from universities and institutions across the UK.

A full list of research groups confirmed for Summer Science 2022 can be found at the Royal Society site or follow #summerscience on social media channels.
