Leading Lights - Science Gallery's Young Leaders

Science Gallery London on Guy’s Campus – alongside Guy’s Hospital – offers new ways for academics to develop and showcase their research, for students to enrich their learning and for local and broader communities to connect with the University on their doorstep.

The Gallery invites new audiences to engage with King’s research through the lens of science and arts. Its thought-provoking seasons are co-created with young people, through its Young Leaders – 15 to 25 year-olds drawn from our home boroughs and student body.

These dynamic and creative young people – from biomedical students to textile designers – shape Science Gallery London’s approach so that its activity represents and champions their interests. Students also play a crucial role as mediators, interpreting scientific and artistic concepts to curious visitors while gaining vital communication skills.

Young Leader and King’s medical student, Mandeep Singh, said: "Science Gallery London challenges students and young people from south London and beyond to embrace their creativity while exploring the very latest scientific thinking."

Science Gallery London hosts three themed seasons each year. Its opening season HOOKED: When Want Becomes Need  explored the complex world of addiction and recovery, drawing on world-leading research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience. Its second season SPARE PARTS, investigated transplantation, regeneration and prosthetics, while DARK MATTER questions what makes up our universe.

Our strategic vision sets out our commitment to London. Science Gallery London is central to this ambition, opening up new ways into King’s, addressing issues that are of significance to the capital and inviting local communities, through their lived experience, to be part of the process of generating new knowledge.

Through Science Gallery London, King’s is making science and culture accessible to everyone, allowing young people the chance to interact with new discoveries and original thinking.– Bella Spencer, Young Leader, Science Gallery London
