Join the British Academy this June for their annual Summer Showcase, a free festival of ideas for curious minds. Featuring 15 interactive exhibits pop-up talks, workshops and performances, the Summer Showcase brings the best new humanities and social sciences research to life. Drop in to meet the brightest minds in archaeology, art history, politics and more, and explore eclectic exhibits designed to educate and inspire – from why our ancestors started to invent stone tools, to how 3D printing is changing lives.

School and college groups are invited to visit the Showcase on Friday 21 June. This is a unique opportunity for students (age 14+) to see the humanities and social sciences in action, from anthropology to art history, linguistics to politics, and to speak directly with researchers about their work.

Schools Day curator, popular historian and broadcaster Dan Snow, will also be on hand throughout the day to engage students in a range of activities.

A small number of travel bursaries are available for schools based outside London and for those unable to travel via public transport. Up to £400 per school is available.
