UCL was founded on a vision to open education and knowledge to the world. It still stands today and following this vision, UCL Culture is committed to engaging with the wider public and with its local communities through a range of projects and activities.
This includes working with schools in the vicinity of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as part of UCL’s work towards the new campus opening there next year, or engaging with new students through a virtual map of the Bloomsbury campus.
Find out more about these recent UCL Culture's virtual projects below.

Ask the Experts
'Ask the Experts' gives young people the chance to ask all sorts of exciting and inquisitive questions directly to our UCL experts, as well as providing an opportunity to find out more about the types of things that are studied at UCL.
Make an Impression II
'Make An Impression' is a printmaking project that shares UCL’s resources and skills with young artists aged 13-18. In 2020, the project resulted in an online showcase of the prints made by six east London schools and colleges.
'Creating Aspirations' is a UCL Culture project in collaboration with George Mitchell Primary School in the London borough of Waltham Forest. Since 2018, teams of students on the Museums and Galleries in Education MA at UCL have worked with a year 5 class throughout the academic year.
You See All
At the beginning of the 2020-21 academic year, UCL Culture created the 'You See All' game - based on a mythical world, parallel version of the Bloomsbury campus - as a way to encourage new UCL students to work together, have fun, and explore the world around them whilst staying safe.
