British Science Week takes place in March and is a 10-day programme of around 4500 events running throughout the whole of the UK with the aim of celebrating science, engineering and technology and its importance in our lives. 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.
6th - 15th March 2020
BSW is always a popular time for school visits and places are limited so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Each year we celebrate BSW by launching a Spectacular new science show which is offered alongside our interactive exhibits and a workshop.
Our new 2020 show is a Destination Space show: SPACEPORTS & SATELLITES
Destination Space is a partnership between the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres, the UK Space Agency and the Government's Space Flight Programme: Launch UK
Cost £6.25 per pupil: Science Show, Workshop and Hands-On Exhibits (indoors and out).
