Great Exhibition² schools programme

The Great Exhibition² is an exciting, cross-curricular research and innovation project for schools and community groups in London including mentoring from world class Imperial College London researchers.

The challenge is inspired by the Great Exhibition of 1851 where the best thinkers of the time responded to the changing world around them in new and imaginative ways, and showcased their designs and inventions for the world to see at the world’s first Great Exhibition.

Imperial College London and Big Ideas invited young people from schools and community groups based in the Royal Borough of Kensington and ChelseaHammersmith and Fulham and Westminster to become ‘Great Innovators’.

See their creations for yourself at the Great Exhibition² tent this summer or for more information about getting involved visit the Big Ideas website.
