Weather Forecast
Don't let the weather put you off; The Centre has plenty to offer no matter what the weather.

Please be aware that our glass fronted building is very hard to heat and we advise all visitors to wear appropriate clothing and footwear. There is no heating in the telescope domes and the temperature can drop rapidly - especially if you visit during an open evening.

Check the latest forecast to help you decide whether to bring sun cream or an umbrella.

British Science Week (BSW)
British Science Week (BSW)
BSW takes place in March and is a 10-day programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities for people of all ages.

With no restrictions on who can organise events, the topics on which they are focused, the audience or the venue, the resulting programme is a hugely varied and eclectic mix suitable for people of all ages and abilities.


BSW events are organised by people from all walks of life; teachers, community groups, industry and many more. All organisers share an enthusiastic approach to science, engineering and technology and the continuing success of BSW depends entirely on the incredible efforts of organisers and the enthusiasm of participants

British Science Week is the new name for National Science & Engineering Week.

BSW is coordinated by the British Science Association and is funded by BIS (Department for Business Innovation and Skills).
